I enjoyed the museum but did not need as much time as I has anticipated. Two hours was enough, that included watching both videos. I recommend watching those videos as they give good background on the Parthenon and the theft of parts of it. The entrance fee is only €5, they should really increase it as we all know Greece...

You decided to visit Athens and you already saw most of the historical highlights? Why not complete your tour with the best museum in town. Not only are the collections amazing, the building itself is stunning! Take some time to see the statues removed from the Parthenon and travel through Greek Antique History. If you are as lucky as I... 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.
