It is a museum of great importance that displays artefacts of the Cycladic art. They may be as old as 5000 BC. There is a lot of information about ancient Greece that can be learnt here.

Santorini, Tinos and Naxos are part of the Cyclades islands, so a visit here before or after will really enhance your enjoyment of the islands' histories. The statues are truly unique and beautiful. Four floors of exploring different eras in Greek history but no overwhelming.

This is a brilliant museum which is not very popular with tourists. However everything is well laid out and is excellent for artophiles

Give yourself at least two hours to visit this museum. The air conditioned floors have the exhibits laid out in a good and attractive manner. The 'toys' are particularly charming.

A large museum with Cycladic art, and various rotating exhibitions. Give yourself at least 2 hours here. The museum spans several floors, and there is an elevator. There is a cafe and gift shop. Worth a visit.

By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
