As the main square for Athens business centre, Omonia sees a constant stream of people and cars 24 hours a day.

The bustling square does not really have any aesthetic quality itself, but is surrounded by shops, offices and many hotels. It is a major station for metro, trolleys and buses and it is easy to travel to any part of Athens from there.

Omonia Square has become more cosmopolitan in the last few years, and down the side streets you may find a few Indian, Pakistani and Chinese businesses and restaurants. The kiosks of the square sell a multitude of foreign newspapers and magazines, and you are sure to find something in your language.
