We stopped at this location during our walking tour of Athens. It is an impressive building from the outside. The interior open part is stunning. The ceiling is a beautiful work of art. It's free so a great option to see.

Zappeion is located in the National garden, which is one most beautiful parks. There are many parrot birds in park. You can even see their nests high up in pine trees. There is also a lake with ducks and turtles pond.

Not a place to travel to in particular, we came across it having walked down through the gardens but it is a lovely structure and has a very Roman feel to it with the mosaics and ceiling paintings. You get a feel for how government...More
