The main location is CLOSED for renovation. The website doesn't make that clear so I went to the main location and then got a cab out to this temporary museum. Fortunately, my guide book had the name of the National Gallery in Greek as the...More
What a sorry excuse for a museum...staffed by a bunch of clueless buffoons.

On all athens maps the museum is located near the Hilton but after getting there I found out that there are works going on and it is just a large building site. I walked all around it and there was no sign whatsoever of an...More
I visited the temporary National Gallery today. It is well worth a visit but I had difficulty finding it. The gallery's own website does not give its location. So for anyone interested, here is how to find it by public transport. Take the Metro to...More

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First
National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
