For 3,000 years the Acropolis and the Parthenon have remained the most important monuments of the City. A week-end in Athens would not be complete without a visit to the admirable Museum of the Acropolis.

Sculptures, vases, jewelry and other objects from the ancient period are displayed along comprehensive explanations of Athens’ history and artistic traditions.
