    You'll find everything here from clothes to fruits antique shops and good local cuisine, it gets a little crowed but nothing that hard to handle. Parking is hard and expensive so a taxi or uber is a m...  more »

    A visit to the central market this morning. Used to browse local markets, this one is particularly dirty. A foul smell travels all Les Halles market, the meat and fish stalls unrefrigerated, etc. Nothing to do, run!

    Definitely a cool spot to check out. Make sure you wear closed toe shoes at the fish market has fish water everywhere. Your feet will get wet and nasty. Otherwise you have a great selection of fresh everything. It's pretty crowded and this is not for the faint of heart. You will see things you might not be used to, but most restaurants I the area source meat from here.

    First off, I will admit that I'm not from Athens, and I did not shop here to find food for cooking, so take my review with a grain of salt. We visited the market and walked through it a few separate times. It was open even through late Saturday afternoon. It's always great seeing what's​ available at markets. There were mostly fish and meat stands, but you can easily find the vegetable, herbs, nuts, and snacks stands. Those are the ones we loved the most because they obviously had better smells. This market, even if you're not intending to buy anything because you're visiting, is worth at least a half hour walk around in order to see all that it offers.

    I love visiting markets when I travel, as each are by different. I like seeing where the food comes from. I received many love and marriage proposals during my walk through. I'm wondering if this is standard procedure?

    Well worth a look around. Not like the Spanish markets, as it is mostly fish and meat on sale. The fruit and veg can be found a little further from the butchers and isn't as big, more like a regular market. Huge selection of fish and seafood. Surrounding area has a lot of interesting shops selling all sorts of food from herbs to cheese to beans.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
