Of course, every tourist must visit it. Museum is big, so it takes some time to walk around. The structure of rooms is not very comfortable, i.e. you have to take a strange route to see everything. But still, you have to go.

This is one of the best archeological greek museums, easily accesible because it is located in the city center. All the greek history of 3500 years is located inside this museum. Worth the visit.

When in Athens, this is a museum you should visit the National Archaeological Museum. Situated in the center of town, easy to access, close to Metro Station Omonia

The collection itself is amazing, but very confusing, especially when compared to the Acropolis Museum. The museum is located in a very run-down neighborhood.

Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as
