Athinas Street is full of hardware stores, clothing shops and other places Athenians would go for every day needs.
The line in the middle is for blind people to find their way. They put these in right before the Olympics and they are everywhere,though in some places where
they dug up the road they come to an abrupt end. If you need a temporary bag to bring gifts home with you then come to Athinas Street.
If you need cheap shoes or clothes, ouzo from Lesvos, doorknobs, a walking cane, a wine press, a hat, a garden hose or a lawnmower come to Athinas Street.
Or if you want to see stuff that tourists generally don't need but you are interested in come to Athinas Street.
