Most of the travellers coming to Athens visit – besides the Acropolis and its museum – the National Museum located at Patision street. It is the biggest museum of Greece and one of the most important museums around Europe.
I love losing myself among its ancient statues. History and beauty is spread out all over the place. At National museum you can find one of the most important exhibitions of Greek history- my favorite one is the is “mechanism of Antikythira”. There is also a really important exhibition about Egyptian antiquities.
After hours of wandering through the past, there is a secret waiting for you. At the basement of the museum there is a secret cafe / garden where you can take a break among trees and statues .
