Ermou Street was one of the first roads designed in modern Athens and a major axis of the city’s first town plan. The street is a one-and-a-half kilometer-long road connecting the Kerameikos archaeological site with Syntagma Square through Monastiraki, Psiri and Thiseio. It consists of three sections: the eastern stretch (from Filellinon Street to Aiolou Street, around 700m long) is a pedestrian zone and the city's best-known and busiest shopping street with fashionable boutiques and a number of international brands; the central section (from Aiolou Street to Agion Asomaton str.) and the western stretch (from Agion Asomaton to Peiraios Street), a pedestrian zone also. One of the oldest churches in Athens, the Byzantine Church of Panaghia Kapnikarea, is in a small square on the eastern end of Ermou Street.
Syntagma Square is located directly across from the Greek Parliament Building. Here it is possible to observe the changing of the presidential guard and take pictures with its uniformed members (the Evzones). The square is surrounded by some shops and restaurants and is full of benches where people sit to enjoy the young musicians who often play there. It also marks the start of the 40-acre National Garden, south of which is the Zappeion Mansion (1874-1888). Continuing along from there is the Presidential Mansion (1897) and the Panathenaic Stadium which is the only stadium in the world built entirely of marble. It is also the place where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. Athens marks one of the handful of cities to have hosted the Olympic Games more than once, as the event returned to Greece 108 years later, during the summer of 2004.
A major part of travelling is learning of new cultures and witnessing sights that astound. Landmarks of major historical heritage like the Parthenon, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Philoppapos Hill and the Ancient Agora are highly recommended to all our visitors who want to learn more of the nation’s great past.
