Central Market

Interesting
Athens Central Market, a noisy and colourful affair, is open from Monday to Saturday. Early in the morning, night owls gather in its restaurants to sample the famous patsa, a tripe soup that soothes drinkers' stomachs. Their seats are later taken by speculators from Sofokleous Street, home to the Stock Exchange with its pompous Doric colonnade.
