Our October 2016 visit to the Acropolis Museum in Athens was our fifth visit to this strikingly beautiful building, collection and context. Situated right next to the Acropolis, and with stunning views of this ancient "city on a hill," we were enthralled as always by the collection and context. Built over an extensive excavation site of a village at the... More

I saw the original caryatids from the Acropolis for the first time. Priceless. We also saw the panels from the Parthenon and so many other historical pieces dating back from the Mycenaean times. The museum hovers over an active excavation site

Very modern museum that you can spend so much time. Full of history and art that will take you back to the Ancient Greece. I was really surprise how modern the building is. A tip that was giving to us is: start at the top of the building and then go to the bottom. The only thing that makes me... More

The Entrance of the Musuem reminding of the way up tp Akropolis. The exiting First floor with all the different impresive statues . The fact that some of them are painted and the paint still can be seen. The karyatides part and finally the last floor representing the roof of Parthenon makes this museum unic. The fact that the whole... More

Built in an archeological exaction site, this museum offers a detailed history of Acropolis to its visitors. I would suggest that you visit the museum first and then visit the ancient ruins.

The museum that hosts numerous ceramics, statues and of course parts of the Parthenon's sculptures. A must see while in Athens, it carries the amazing energy of the city's thousands of years of history. The amazing view to the Acropolis itself is a definite privilege best enjoyed on a sunny day.

If its your first time take your time, look around (by around, I mean up and below you). Even before you enter the doors there are a lot to see. When you are done, go to the café and enjoy the view of the hill. Opposite to the museum there is an entrance to it. If you like exploring, climb... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
