Well, to tell you the raw truth guys, I was never believing that I could stay in a Museum for more than 45 minutes, until I saw the brand-new, shining, clean, tidy, safe and full of technology "Acropolis Museum" , which even features food, coffee,...More

New Acropolis Museum: there is a disease among modern museums. A disease where curators think that the building is more important than the contents. I'm thinking of Munich Museum and the Sainsbury's Gallery at the British Museum as bad cases. The New Acropolis Museum is...More

Why are the "Elgin" Marbles still in UK with this magnificent, world-class museum fully in place and ready to receive them? There is simply no excuse. I am a museum curator from a major US institution and this is one of the best-constructed, best-interpreted museums...More

This is a fantastic museum that centres on the Acropolis but is built over an active site that will be open to the public before very long. It was a shame that there are parts of the museum that don't allow photography. The explanations for...More

I loved that this museum is built on stilts over historical ruins that you can see through glass portions of the floor. There are several levels with artifacts thoughtfully laid out. There is even a small auditorium area that plays a video on the history...More

This museum shows what the Acropolis and especially the Parthenon was like when it was built. It details items that are now in other museums in other Island countries that have been removed. This museum is a view into the past

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

Suggest to go early. Get there by 08h45 and entry should be very quick. After 09h30 the crowds start.

Hi there. I didn't use public transport during my time in Athens. I believe there is a metro stop at the Acropolis. From memory, there was left luggage at the airport.
