Hi guys, is the Benaki museum worth the trip? I’m backpacking through Europe on a budget, and I’m trying to see what the most “bang for your buck” places are.

If you like Byzantine and more modern Greek history, then yes otherwise the National Archaeological Museum and the Acropolis Museum are far better for ancient artefacts.

It depends what you like seeing in museums. It’s a very well respected, reputable museum with very well researched exhibitions. One of the best in Greece in modern art and other contemporary themes. There are two Benaki museums, check them out and visit the cafe on the very central one! The one in Pireos str is not open every day due to financial problems. Check opening days before you go!
 

Restaurants with a View in Athens

I am putting together a list of restaurants to try in Athens and I want to have multiple moods on it... Sometimes, I want to dine purely with a view, sometimes I just want a really great meal.

I found this article - what do you guys think of these places in the article? Do you know of any great places with a view in Athens? Ideally the food will also be excellent:


Sometimes I don't have luck with TripAdvisor places, because I am not sure the people voting are necessarily locals...

LAST MINUTE OFFERSON GALILEO!

If any one is lucky or has an opportunity to be on Galileo they will never ever forget these experiences.Many years I formulated an itinerary for Aris Drivas Yatching and Galileo was in Mykonos for an initial practice and presentation sailing around the Cyclades!I didn't have time to go sailing with her, just being on board and seeing her again moored in Syros for many days was just magical..

Researching the Temple of Poseidon

I am going to visit Greece soon to take some photos and enjoy the country in general (I am a photographer). One of the stops I plan to make is to the Temple of Poseidon and I was told to go at sunset. What do you guys think of that advice?

Anyway, ahead of the trip, I thought I would research the place a bit.... Does anyone have anything to add?
