We spent 3 or 4 hours here and felt we could have gone back. Lovely new museum. Great display giving a real understanding of the Parthenon marbles and a wide range of stone from Ancient Greece stretching from the 6th century BC to the Roman...More

OK, its only my 9th or 10th visit. Every time its becoming more interesting, deploying more images and fantasies of Αncient Greece. I perish myself in scenes and events that took part in more than 2.500 years in the same area of Athens

We really enjoyed visiting this museum before heading over to the Acropolis. It summarized Greek history and the history of the Acropolis as you went up the museum's floors. It culminated with the top floor being a in-the-round display of how the Partheon originally looked....More

we did the tour with a guide and had limited time to review the exhibits; so if you want to closely examine the extensive display allow plenty of time.

Excellent exhibits, but the most memorable aspect was the actors being extremely rude to visitors to give the atmosphere of the days of the Tyrants. I can't imagine how they kept up that performance with such intensity throughout the day.The British Musueum could benefit from...More

Perhaps the best museum I've ever visited. It took a few decades to build but with a view that overlooks the Acropolis, it is a must see in Athens. If you want a complete view of these great treasures, you'll have to visit the British...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
