“The first conference centre in Athens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Built upon a donation from a very rich greek family, this complex aimed to provide all the needed space for conventions and conferences during the early 2oth century. It is still used for some formal events, and it is placed in the middle of a park next to all the main archaeological sites of Athens.

“Wonderful place for a relaxing walk and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Back to Athens for a week! Zappeio is the perfect place in Athens for a relaxing walk in an idyllic environment, with tall trees and flowers and of course the amazing building of Zappeio Megaron. Take a stop at the Agli cafe and order loukoumades with ice cream... You will definitely not regret it. A must visit by all people coming to Athens.

“OLYMPIC GAMES, THINK AGAIN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

When we talk about the modern olympic games the names that come to our minds are Couberten and Vikelas. But think again. This fantastic building belongs the foundation of the Zappa family that made partly the Olympic games of 1896 possible. IT certainly is worthy of a visit.
TIP: if you are with a car just in front of the building there is a gate that you can come in and park your car.
