“Ship- museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Old battle ship,which is museum nowdays
Georgios Averof is the world's only surviving heavily armored cruiser of the early 20th century.
She was towed to her permanent berth in Faliron Bay in 1985, where is now open as a museum. The museum also displays Athenian Trireme Olympias (reconstructed, 1987) and WW II Destroyer HS Velos (D-16)
Will be very interesting for sea lovers and kids

“Excellent Battleship Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in April. Not crowded. Very well maintained battleship, built in the early 1900's. Particularly enjoyed the fact that so many of the compartments on the vessel were accessible to the visitors. This battleship played a great role in the military history of Greece between 1911 and 1946, and it so nice to be able to visit.

The entry cost is really low, adults 2 euro, children 1,5 euro.

Worth visiting this history vessel. And after that, go to nearby Flisvos marina for a coffee. Take a stroll. There are also other history vessels in the area.

“Warship Averof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012

Good place to visit if you like ships - there's not just the Averof, but the Velos (an ex-US WW2 destroyer) a small steam cable-layer, and an accurate replica of a trireme. Modest entry fee, not sure of opening times. (I've given it 4 stars as I like ships, not sure Mrs. Althusian would have rated it so highly!)
Within a few hundred yards is a marina, shops and restaurants so no problems eating/drinking. I got there from Athens (Monastiraki) by going:
Metro Line 1 to Faliron
Exit south side of station
Walk about 100 yards E along the road, and pick up a tram eastbound
Alight Trocadero, and the ships are five minutes walk along road or through marina.

“Week-end in Athens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Nice hotel, good location, helpful staff, comfortable rooms, very clean, a lot of facilities - coffee, tea facilities, minibar, LCD TV, bathroom with hairdrier ,small pool, old fitness room. Good choice if you want to visit Athens or to have a sea side holiday. Pleasant idea to have a day in an island - Egina will be great.
