  • They are building a masterpiece, a work of art that adorns the Athens. For me the most beautiful building in Greece but unfortunately graffiti spoiling the view.

  • The Academy of Athens was founded with the Constitutional Decree of March 18th 1926, as an Academy of Sciences, Humanities and Fine Arts. The same Decree appointed its first Members, who were all eminent representatives of the scientific, intellectual and artistic circles of that era.
  • A very interesting Building. the Sculptures and the main teaching Room are Amazing.
  • The world wisdom is not enough if not Faith,Spirit,Patience and Brotherhood does not exist..In our Academy the Candle ol Light that carries all these centuries of our people wisdom is the place that it's Voice must be leading and heard nowdays ..
  • What a beauty, and a wonderful example of Neo Classical design. Go inside and look into the main meeting room. Outside columns has statues of Athena and Apollo. At the bottom of the steps are Plato on the Left and Socrates on the right. Plato built his first school on a plot of land called The Academy, which is why all higher learning schools are called The Academy all over the world.
  • Beautiful reconstruction of old architecture.

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.
