One of the more fascinating aspects of ancient Greek history is the development of the alphabet, from it's linear a and b roots, to the introduction of the Phoenician consonants and how it all evolved from there. The museum does an excellent job of taking...More

Part of the €15 combo museum ticket and right next to the National Archaeological museum. I think 20 minutes will satisfy most people, as the focus is on ancient stone text. Still, it's interesting to see. Do note, they close at 3pm.

Well, one can see documents that shaped the history of Athens intact, 2500 years later. The fascinating artifacts speak the history of Greece directly to the visitor, the same way they did to the ancient athenians! (The content is not easily describable with my words...More

The Epigraphic Museum is a real hidden gem. We only had a few days in Athens and so made a short list of places to visit. This one wasn't even on our radar - probably because Athens has so many amazing attractions, and since the...More

Quirky museum if you can read Greek. It contains hundreds of examples displayed of stones with Greek inscriptions. This isn't an art museum, more like an open warehouse of artifacts.

The museum is right next to the huge Archaelogical museum. It has a vast collection of (mainly) marble inscriptions from ancient Athens. As marble was the only thing you could write on at the time, everything (from laws to dedications) was written on marble. So,...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
