This museum features some of the best and most world renowned pieces from the ancient times in the Cycladic islands. I really like this museum because it showcases region specific artwork in Greece rather than art from the entire country. I also like how it focusses on a specific time. So that I can compare with the other museums and see how the art has changed over time and across the regions. Have any of you been to this museum? Please let me know your experience
Athens has some of the best street art in the whole world! The artists have so much passion and always showcases the history of Greece or some of the current struggles that are happening. Taking note and paying attention to the graffiti and street art is one of the best ways to get a pulse of the city. Athens has a really big student and artist community and they use the buildings and architecture as their canvas. Here is a guide to some of the best street art in Athens.
Monastiraki and Plaka are the best place for shopping and eating restaurants! They're both really close to the Acropolis and there are many local shops and restaurants. I really love the area and highly suggest that you visit the area and even get a hotel that's closeby because there are just so many things to do. Its pretty safe, which is important because Athens is getting slightly dangerous.
