Cypriot art is a strong and important part of Greek culture, that unfortunately many people forget about. Whether or not that you believe Cyprus should or shouldn't be a part of Greece, the beauty of Cypriot culture and art is undeniable. You can see a lot of Cypriot Art at the museum in Athens which showcases about 1,000 paintings and sculptures from Ancient Greece to modern day.

Hi!
What town would you recommend to visit to learn more about Cypriot art? I dream to visit Athens but I would also like to travell round Cyprus. May be you can recommend any places:)

Are there any artifacts from Mycenaean Greece there? I’ve heard we still cannot read their language because it hasn’t been deciphered, and that’s why this civilization is that mysterious.
I’m interested in Ancient World art and its influence over modern art, and I am doing research on the topic. It’s really interesting to notice similar motifs and notice how often they are repeated in different cultures. You might find similarities between, for instance, Persian Calligraphy and, say, Ancient Greek art, and I just cannot wrap my head around it.

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?

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...
