Zappeion is a change from the ancient buildings of Athens, yet still in that classical style. Not far from the gardens and has a nice restaurant nearby.

A nice hall located in a lovely garden setting, the Zappeion is worth a visit for lovely photo-ops and a view of something different from the historic sites that dot the city's landscape!

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
