Worth a visit before you climb the hill up to the acropolis. There are lots of pots and statues with good information on them.

Just an amazing collection of artifacts. You are not allowed to take pictures but we're found take a few and we're asked not to take any more.

I would like to suggest that Acropolis is a must see attraction for every one who visits Athens. It is a master piece of perfection.

Great place to visit to see many ancient artifacts after you have visited the Acropolis. Well worth it.

The Acropolis Museum is very inviting and quite a spectacle. You can get immersed in the ancient history surrounding the area as the displays are excellent. Be prepared to spend some time in this one of a kind building. Athens on.

Must see, more to learn about Acropolis. It is much better first go to the Museum, then visit Acropolis.

The museum isn’t huge but all the marble pieces are beautiful and the video in English that explains the history of the acropolis is worth watching.

A wonderful collection, sympathetically presented to help bring the Acropolis to life depicting it through different stages in its development.

Make sure you have a lot of time to spare. This is not something that you will see in a hurry. One of the best museums in the world and I have been to a few. Very well maintained, clean and spacious. Marble statues thousand...More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

We went early December and was perfect for walking around all the sites. No queues or crowds. If you are worried about weather at all we did get rain on one day hence the trip into the museum. Maybe November might be better... More

Athens, Istanbul and a Greek Island too? Too much for 8 day (3 Replies)
My 15 year old twins and my wife have a busy summer schedule and we are trying to see Athens and Istanbul in 8 days (at the end of June), and I wondered if we should try to see Santorini (or another Greek Island) too. If we have three destinations, we'd only spend 2 1/2 days in Istanbul ... Only 1 1/2 days on Santorini ... And the last 3 1/2 days in Athens. Otherwise, we would just split our 8 days between Athens and Istanbul -- with day trips to Delphi, Corinth, etc. What do you...More

Well, it's difficult to give you some advice, because you admit you don't actually know Istanbul. For me Istanbul has much, much more to offer than Athens, which, except for acropolis and museums, is quite an ugly city, whilst Istanbul is stunning. 2 full days for Athens are enough. A day trip to Delphi is tiresome (the heat at the end of June is awful), but feasible. If you are interested in bizantine ruins, going to Mistra could be interesting, but it is an hassle as a day trip from...More

Are there any Athens tourist information offices in Athens? Last year there was one near the Acropolis museum. Things change all the time so I was just wondering.
