The four floors of this very good museum present the history and culture of the Cycladic Islands in many ways: exhibits, artifacts, sound, and film. The collection is very good and well-presented. The gift shop has a good selection of unusual items.

This is a well curated collection with some helpful video material. Best to start at the top floor and work down since the top floor describes the history, lifestyle and rituals.

By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
