Acropolis Museum

Modern, uptodate building on the foot of the Acropolis housing important ancient Greek statues and much more

Reviewed By TravelingHen - Atlanta, Georgia

After visiting this excellent museum, I agree that the Parthenon Marbles should be returned from the British Museum. The top floor, built to house the marbles, and with a few of the originals and reproductions of the rest, is worth the price of admission alone. The views of the Acropolis from the 4th floor and the outdoor restaurant are amazing. There were visitors and school groups from all over the world at the museum. Staff were excellent. Restaurant food was good. Note: tickets are 1/2 price Nov - March, but hours are shorter.

Amelia at Antelope Travel was excellent. Very professional. I took the suggestions and upgrades and was not disappointed. All shuttle pick ups were on time, the tours booked were great and the hotels on Mykonos and Santorini were beautiful.
Everything was arranged in advance and it made it a memorable holiday.

Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre

A multifunctional and environmentally sustainable education, arts, and recreation destination. It comprises of the Stavros Niarchos Park, and the new facilities of the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO). Designed with the purpose of being open and accessible to all, it enriches the lives of the country's residents and aims to attract visitors from around the world.

Reviewed By Bardangas - Athens

The edifice- Niarchos Foundation- overlooking the Phaleric Gulf-has character, prowess, metamodern distillate, lacking historicity and intimacy. It is an eloquent contrivance creating its own flimsy context with perambulatory activities, linear elevations, ambitious vistas, water enclosures but nothing humane, interpersonal, interpersonal, soothing and intimate. It was edesigned as a formal exterior dictating a crisp frigid interior. The cherry tree paneling although impressive lacks the operatic serene tone of anticipatory acceptance. Wood is not ised in the prehensile fashion but as a cover vitrine. Peopele move around as in a train station but there are no trains. There is no distiction between the librarian and the musician.
The 'Romeo and Juliet' performanc of March 2 2028 was unique for the hellenix standards (first performance domestically), scenographically inadequate, phonetically unequal but honest and honourable.
Beware of the parking ordeal ex post!!

The MindTrap Nea Smirni

The biggest escape room in Europe!

Reviewed By leeloogathens - Athens, Greece

First of all, the waiting room is very cosy-there is also coffee and water. The staff is very kind and helpful-and so is the game master. As for the room it is based on the book but you dont need to have read it in...MoreHello, We would like to thank you for your review and your recommendations. We are glad to know you had a good time and we hope to see you again! Kind regards, The Mindtrap Team

Parthenon

The majestic ruins of an ancient Greek building, known for its dignified white marble columns and perfect sense of proportion.

Reviewed By Reslysten54 - Vienna, Virginia

Restaurations continue of this remarkable tempel, and scaffolding covers one of the short sides. Nevertheless, the impression is striking when you get up close and the magnitude of this building becomes obvious. Severely damaged by ear and vandalism, it remains majestic.
You can get an even better understanding of it's history by visiting the nearby Acropolis Museum.

A special visit was made to this museum. Opening times were checked, which stated open Sundays. On arrival gates closed, notice attached showing opening times that again confirmed Sundays. A local lady attracted the attention of a person working in the complex who said it may be open Wednesday.
Plus the main exhibit had been removed for maintenance.
If you are travelling some distance to visit ignore the information given and perhaps telephone to check times and save an expensive Taxi fare.

Acropolis

The most famous site in all of Athens, this large hill lies in the center of the city and contains a cluster of ancient ruins.

Reviewed By Sharontje - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Awesome experience. Were pleasantly surprised to be charged a reduced fee of €10 instead of €20, think this was the winter season price, ending on 31 March. Be sure to visit the clean toilets at the entrance (Plaka side) before you go as there’s no facilities once you’re up there!

Flisvos Marina

Reviewed By Manuel M - Beirut, Lebanon

Neat, clean and organized. Lots of parking spots but make sure to be there early on weekends as it tends to fill really quick. Bathrooms very clean.
Lots of cafes, and restaurants all along the harbor. Nice walking area to enjoy with kids. A nice play area in the location whereby kids would enjoy it even more than Allou Park.

Plaka

Historic neighborhood located at the base of the hill topped by the Acropolis.

Reviewed By Monica C - Bucharest, Romania

I’d say this is a good lace to go to when coming back from the Acropolis - you can either sit at a nice Terrace or go shopping. The streets are narrow with pretty historical buildings and the shops have a good offer of souvenirs, traditional produce, clothes and others.

Temple of Hephaestus

This ancient Greek temple, located on the Acropolis and dedicated to Hephaistos, god of the forge, is one of the few temples to be almost entirely preserved.

Reviewed By Ruth K - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

As part of the Ancient Agora, this is not a temple to miss. It's in excellent condition and also provides some great views. Not to be missed.
