The Acropolis museum is located below the Acropolis hill and holds a splendid collection of sculptures and murals. Bonus: it's very well air conditioned, so it's a great place to catch your breath after hiking on the Acropolis hill.

New museum with artifacts from the Parthenon and other sites on the Acropolis. The exhibit of the full size the Parthenon gives you a real sense of the Parthenon that sits atop the Acropolis.

Incredible place with more than you can imagine to see. Crowds and $5 water are the negative (or find a unauthorized water seller for $1). Zero share up top so an hour is all we could do

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

Suggest to go early. Get there by 08h45 and entry should be very quick. After 09h30 the crowds start.
