Absolutely love that so modern and colorful museum! You just need to stop at Syntagma station and it is located near to the Benaki museum. Visiting both of them is a great idea because they are both very different. Unless if you don’t have a...More

A great exhibition: “Maria Callas - The Myth Lives On”, offering a rare glimpse into her personal life until her death in 1977.

Private exhibition gallery behind Parliament. Not so touristic place. Very fine gallery and the temporary exhibition of Callas was extraordinary. Find this, it is fine.

I visited today and went through a three floor exhibit of Picasso and Cocteau. It was very fascinating. The staff are quite amiable. The museum is a stone throw from Syntagma square where change of the guards takes place.

This is a building that houses exhibitions, concerts, theater plays etc. and for that, it does the job to an excellent degree. Its theater is nice, the exhibition space well lit and overall the presentation and cleanliness is top notch.

Not a major attraction on the tourist charts, this venue is a must for anyone staying in Athens a few days and wanting to sample real Athenian atmosphere. It is housed in a new-classical building, hosts high-end art exhibitions, has a very nice restaurant and...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
