Planning your next trip to Athens and one of your greatest anxieties is to make it possible in the days of your escape to see all the major sights of the city. But there are some secrets that tourist guides do not write and are worth knowing!


Athens was the heart of Ancient Greece, a powerful civilization and empire. The city is still dominated by 5th-century BC monuments, including the Acropolis.

Acropolis of Athens

The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The word acropolis is from the Greek words ἄκρον and πόλις.

With the embarrassment of riches that is Greece’s history, Athens’ museums are superb showcases of all things Greek. Most of Athens’ archaeological museums could also be characterised as art museums, what with their troves of Greek and Roman sculptures, pottery and jewellery. 

National Archeological Museum

The National Archaeological Museum ranks among the top ten museums in the world. Its impressive collection is housed in a beautiful neoclassic building near the juncture of Alexandras Avenue on Patission Avenue. There is a gift shop, and a cafe in the sculpture garden. Children under 6 and EU students get in free. Be sure to see the Antikithira Device, an ancient computer that will change the way you think about the ancient Greeks.
