Also known as "Downtown Bargain" (during the Turkish possession era), Monastiraki has maintained its bargaining flair. The picturesque district of Monastiraki is the place to visit with the company of a local host if you want to have an inside taste of the Greek culture. Its numerous streets and alleys are occupied by many shops and street vendors.
What you should not miss out on is the flea market. Every Sunday Monastiraki turns into a cultural hub marrying aspects of modern lifestyle to the old heart and soul of the city which is still alive. A huge variety of products from ceramics, books and vinyls to copper or bronze hearth sets is your for the taking!
Once your shopping experience is complete, it is high time you discovered the open air market where you are bound to run into some tasty food. The wide range of cafes and taverns can satisfy any kind of taste!

Off-Roading in Evia Island: All-Inclusive Experience
one time life experiment! we loved it!!! we highly recommend Offroad Greece 4X4. It's a chance to explore the unknown parts of Greeces virgin countryside the way the local drivers do it. the hole teem was extremely friendly and hospitable, treating us like we were "part of the family". making sure we are comfortable and high spirited the hole time.
you get to experience true offroading, with its challenges and extremes. not a boring tourist routine. this trip truly made our vacation a one to remember, we will definitely come back again. Don't miss it!!!

Fresh Seafood Home Dinner with Panoramic View
We arrived at Michail and Mikos home and admired the beautiful evening view of Athens city before trying a shot of Mastiha. Mikos worked enthusiastically in the kitchen, preparing a very generous feast. Meanwhile Michail kept us engaged in interesting conversations. All the food was local. The fish had been freshly caught that morning by Kilos father. The feta and olive oil was home made on his family farm by his mother. The vegetables were fresh from his family farm. It was truly unique and authentic. Absolutely fantastic evening! We highly recommend this experience! Wonderful food and great company!
