The archeological museum of Brauron is dedicated to the ancient sanctuary of Artemis where Iphigenia from Tauris had to serve as her priestess after her brother Orestes had stolen the goddess’s effigy in Tauris. At Brauron young children were prepared for their future life according to the ideals of the Athenian democracy. Consequently you’ll find in the small museum many... More

If you have just a few hours to spend and you are near the Athens international airport, it's a wonderful choice. Actually the place is so interesting that you might want to come to this side of Attica anyway... The temple of Artemis , built by a small river. Never crowded, a small tidy museum... A trecking walk around to... More

Vravrona/Ancient Brauron is an ancient site dedicated to the cult of Artemis. The satnav might take you to the ruins, by a road, but the way in is by a different road, via the museum. The museum is much bigger than you'd expect for a small site (cf Temple of Poseidon at Sounio). It tells the story of Brauron, an... More

Very enjoyable way of spending a day walking around in a peaceful & green location. The museum although small, is also worth visiting and is included in the ticket price along with the ruins.

I cannot find the opening times for this place. But the Temple of Artemis is visible from the road. There have been 20th century excavations, and Vravrona is now deemed an important archaeological site with a fascinating museum

Visited in April, as have been meaning to visit the site for the last couple of years, to find it closed. We took a bus from Artemis and walked from the Terminal stop to the site. Approximately two kilometres. The site is dedicated to the goddess protector of hunters, animals and the safe birth of humans.

Brauron consists of an ancient sanctuary to Artemis, and a museum. Getting there is not the easiest, and was complicated by the fact that the guidebooks are now all out of date in this respect. Those few that mention Brauron at all tell you to go to Ethniki Amyna metro station on line 3 and get the 304 bus from... More

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.
