Great combination between modern architecture and antiques. The collection offered is very wide and this is definitely a great place to understand a lot about Greece and ancient Mythology. It is however sad that there are no audio guides.

I’m glad we covered the museum first before the actual Acropolis site itself as it gave us good background information. The top floor gives a fantastic 360 view of the whole area.

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
