  • Our walking tour guide recommended that we visit here before going up to the Acropolis. We are very happy we did. The museum artifacts and films gave us a much better picture of what the Acropolis was...  more »
  • The new Acropolis Museum houses antique pieces in its first and second floors. The caryatids are located on the top floor also and on the highest you can see the friezes and metopes of the Parthenon. The parts that are in the British Museum are reproduced in plaster. It is free of charge for groups of students and it is necessary to leave the backpack in the wardrobe for free. Open from 8.00 to 20.00, less Friday which closes at 22.00.

  • Ancient and modern marry perfectly in a place that will leave you speechless. The space is contemporary with bright light bathes to exhibits. Artifacts of a bygone era. Unimaginable for us. A journey through time and the magnificence of a people of antiquity. I will not write much, because the more we are described. You simply have to see. Prefer morning hours to avoid the crowds. Work focus area and shops with souvenirs.

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.
