The museum was designed by swiss architect Bernard Tschumi and it is really great example of modern minimalistic building and ancient collection. Breath taking view on Acropolis and whole city before sunset.

We enjoyed seeing the items found in the Acropolis with English descriptions about each one. The air conditioned cafe was a nice place to take a break, with tasty food at a reasonable price.

The spacious layout of this light filled museum makes it easy to see the displays even with large numbers of people present. This is one of the world's best museums. The design is extraordinary.

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

We paid for a multi-ticket for all the main attractions but I think just the museum was only 5 Euro.
