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.
One of the most remarkable, cultural and archaeological important museum in the world. Enjoying learning and reading the various history and background of the items and treasures that are housed in the museum. A pity that the antikythera mechanism was loan out for an external...More

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
its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
