September marks the arrival of the autumn, but that is only on your calendar if you are in Greece, where the sun keeps on beaming from above, the sea keeps on casting its blue and green spell on people, and the atmosphere keeps on dressing in dazzling red and orange clothes throughout the day.
The autumn Sales in Athens, Greece in the retail sector will be from Friday, 1st November to Sunday, 10th November 2013!
On Saturday the 25th of October, people and artists that consider the streets, the parks and the squares of Athens as their natural canvas, are making an organized proposal-invitation to the people of Athens. Artists, theater groups, street performers, musicians, jugglers, acrobats, graffiti artists and many others will take over the streets of Athens and paint them with spectacles, happenings and action.
The Town Hall is situated on a central square of Athens, surrounded by architecturally interesting buildings. Athinas Street, a popular commercial street, runs in front of the Town Hall. Visit the Varvakeios market and do not forget to see Kapnikarea Church and St Eleutherios just next to Athens Cathedral. On Ermou Street, the most important commercial street in Greece, one can find all sorts of luxury products.
Best areas for value-for-money shopping are by far Ermou Street and the Monastiraki district. In Ermou Street you'll find trendy retail chains and small boutique shops, while in the Monastiraki district you will discover great finds at great prices.
Don't forget to visit the open flea market which takes place at weekends, in the same district.
