“The Acropolis Museum, one of the most important in the world, includes unique masterpieces, mainly original works of archaic and classical Greek art, which are directly connected to the sacred rock of the Athenian Acropolis. These are free votive sculptures, as well as sets of architectural sculptures that adorned the buildings erected during various historical periods on the Acropolis.”
“A big former brewery now Athens' gallery of contemporary art, mostly Greek artists. Worth a visit for the Janine Antoni piece alone which is amazing. A refreshing change from the usual tourist diet of yet more ancient artifacts poorly displayed. The Museum has free WiFi and a good free app with written and audio guides of many of the pieces on display. The "ten highlights" quick tour is enjoyable and thought-provoking - recommended. Note that reopening in March 2020 entry is free for the month, but not all the exhibits are open, and the cafe and restaurant are closed. There is a bag check for security. There is a nice view of the Acropolis and Philopappos Hill from the terrace. There are some very good cafes and sweet cake/confectionery shops on the street opposite. ”
“Its first name for the National Garden until 1974 was "Royal Garden". The park is located next to the Greek Parliament and extends to the south where the Zappeion Palace is located opposite the Panathinaikos Stadium where the first Modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. The National Garden is 15.5 hectares. It is located in the center of Athens and, adding the garden of Zappeion with an area of 13 hectares, the park has an area of 28.5 hectares, ie a total of 285 acres. The garden houses ancient ruins, columns, mosaics, etc. At its southeastern end are the busts of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the great Philelina Eynardos, while at its southern end is the bust of the national poet Dionysios Solomos and Aristotle.”
“The Panathinaiko Stadium, also known as Kallimarmaro, is a stadium in Athens located in the area of Pagrati, east of Zappeion and north of the hill of Ardittos, through which the Ilissos River passes. At the Panathinaiko Stadium, competitions were held for the first modern Olympic Games, in 1896. With the reconstruction of the Stadium for the holding of the first Modern Olympic Games, the development of the wider district of Pagrati began.”
“Absolutely brilliant place, very tasteful restored. One can walk along the streets and sit beneath the trees amidst the ruins and imagine how life had been there some 2500 odd years ago. There is a good museum and decent ruins of one of the temples. The Acropolis and Aeropagus are very close.”
