  • The title of the Museum is misleading. Anyone who believes that he here Gets the effects of numerous occupations on the city and its inhabitants, the city in the second world war or the post-war period information about the history of Athens, to the modern, is wrong. There are two old houses where once lived the King of Greece and there stand his old furniture. Who wants to feel like at Grandma visiting and thereby get marginal information about the King and Athens in his time, which is right here. The € 5 entrance are not worth the thing. Would rather spend the money in the very nice cafe behind the House and in the Wikipedia entry on Athens read here to learn more.

  • But unfortunately a little less than half the staff. It is for us a historic building. Few know that it was the first home of Otto. Unfortunately the photo ban (why?) and the dullness of staff (to the point of rudeness) is in minus.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
