  • found the acropolis a stunning place to visit views were brilliant the museum was brilliant a must place it was very busy get there early . 
  • The new museum is a must-see after a walk in the Acropolis. The museum is state of the art regarding the exhibits and architecturally as well. Make sure you do not need to rush through it! 
  • Perfect view of Acropolis while dining at the cafe enjoying free WiFi. What else can you ask for! Food was excellent, reasonably priced. I am very satisfied!
