If you are even thinking about making the trek to the Acropolis, you must do the museum. Well worth the 5 euro in admission. So much history and background.

Top floor with Parthenon reconstruction is great. Glass floors show the ruins underneath the museum. Also thru the city.

The museum in and of itself is part of the attraction. The ruins below it seem a bit surreal. Musuem is very well laid out

Amazing artifacts! Bask in the collection of centuries old artifacts, history, and mythology! Incredible to see the ornate carvings and intricacy in design and to learn about the attention to detail given to each and every relief.

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

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