This fantastic museum is primarily dedicated to the prehistoric and ancient art of the Cyclades islands, a group of small islands in the Aegean Sea. More than two thousand islands form a circle (hence the name of the archipelago) around the sacred island of Delos....More

This museum has an impressive Collection of ancient art including lots of work from a once Lost civilization. It cost €7 to get in, but it's worth it. It's a very manageable museum with a good overview of Greek ancient art.

While the other floors are interesting, it is the Cycladic floor collection that shines. An interesting diversion from the Greeks and Romans.

home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label

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
