In the centre of Athens. Easily accessible and packed with history across the centuries. Entry ticket a bit expensive.

The museum was fascinating and not so large that I was overwhelmed. If we hadn't been suffering a little jet lag we would have gotten a lot more knowledge and enjoyment from the visit.

This is a must do activity in Athens. Wonderfully set out and privately owned, it depicts Greek history from the monolithic ages 6500bc to the early 20th century. You will need at least 2 hours and probably require future visits to really appreciate the wealth...More

which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
