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!

When you see the Acropolis for the first time you realise that all the pictures you have seen does not do it justice. it is a steep climb to the top of the hill but it is worth it. However there are downsides. There is a lot of restoration work going on so you will see massive cranes and a... More

If you're tight on time when you're visiting Athens, then just go to the Acropolis and this museum. It shows 95% of the Acropolis before it was destroyed. First go to 3rd floor to see the big picture. Be sure to see the movie on that floor - they show it in different languages so be patient. Nice cafe too.... More

This is realy good and nice place, the presentation and displays all very clear. The real History is in front the museum you can see the Acropolis. Its "must be" place to visit.

Visited this museum on a weekday morning as part of a broader tour. Pros: 1. Range of exhibits - diverse range of relics from variety of periods excavated from the Acropolis adjacent to the museum. Something for everyone. 2. Presentation of exhibits - building is beautifully designed to make the most of the light and space. Especially like how the... More

The museum is architecturally stunning and the top floor, which is aligned to the Parthenon, offers fantastic views of the city. There are lots of treasures that give an insight in to life on the Acropolis. Many of the more personal objects are in the corridor which you enter on the first (ground) floor, I suggest lingering here as these... More

It is huge and FULL of history, so take your time! It is easy to get to and during a hot day, a good must do before you walk up to the acropolis.

Architecturally stunning, airy and full of natural light. The displays are well-marked and explained. I loved everything about this museum, including the restaurant with its view of the Acropolis.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
