Description

Omonia Square is the very heart of Athens, with all the hustle and bustle accompanying its city centre location. It incorporates not just the square, but many of the small streets and grand buildings surrounding it where a number of restaurants, cafés, small flea markets and a choice of hotels are to be found. As the hub of the metro and bus network, trips from here to the rest of this colourful capital radiate out like spokes on a wheel; the Acropolis is just over a mile away and many other remarkable attractions are within easy reach.

Culture lovers will enjoy the proximity of the National Archaeological Museum, the largest, and most popular of Athens museum. On display is a vast collection of treasures and artifacts from Greece's classical past including exhibits from Mycenae, ancient sculptures, figurines, and frescoes and the remains of the Antikythera mechanism, the oldest known mechanical computer. The imposing National Theatre and Athens Art Gallery are also nearby.

Thronging with people round the clock, all of life is here. As such, Omonia is an exciting adult environment during the day but, as with any highly populated area, petty crime can thrive. So care is advisable, particularly after dark.Omonia Square is the very heart of Athens, with all the hustle and bustle accompanying its city centre location.
