  • Are around and lined with neo-classical buildings. This library is really nice library is no. 1 right. You can get inside if you opened was closed because it was new year's day, but seems. Worth a look so lovely in appearance alone is.

  • Situated on panepistium Street. Look wonderfully made curved stairs are beautiful. Unfortunately when you are into free to anyone who was prohibited. Old books from floor to ceiling fully arranged, was a sight to see.

  • Beautiful building and a huge collection. You can't visit all the rooms but it's worth a stop over.
  • That's a pity that we can't enter as it was closed for a period in summer time. Unexpected.
  • Very friendly librarian, helpful and good advisor. Above that, beautiful library-must to see!
  • closed at the moment as they are moving books around (or something). didn't realise until we had arrived there; don't think anything about this is mentioned online
  • We went in the morning @ 9+am and it was closed, but a male librarian staff, upon seeing us outside the door, open its doors for us. He went out of his way, gave us a quick history (it will be relocated very soon) and even showed us around the inside of the library, which is closed to the public! for this, we are very thankful. Its a very ancient but beautiful library, like a scene taken out from harry potter.

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.
