The artwork, icons, manuscripts, friezes, jewelry was displayed and it took us little more than an hour to make our way through the museum. Multiple levels and a lot of walking. The history of the site was also very good.
Not the most well know museum of Athens, it is a very impressive collection of very different pieces of religious artifacts, representing various periods of Christianity. The permanent exhibition is hosted at the excellently arranged underground area of a historic building, Villa Ilissia. We spent...More
A very interesting museum with wonderful Byzantine Icons and amazing exhibitions, such as El Greco, Holy Tomb of Christ from Jerusalem and various others. It is a MUST to visit and has a wonderful garden with a coffee shop and restaurant.
Recently visited this museum on my last day in Athens. Easy to find and get to, being located close to stations (bus, train) also with many taxis occupying the main road opposite the museum.
Located beside the Millitary museum, there are also many other sights...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.
