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.

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.

August Village Vibes in Athens.

Visiting Temple of Poseidon

I will be in Athens and I want too spend some time at the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio.

We will be staying near (or in) Glyfada - I forget where.

I was told you just need to take a taxi or something? I won't be renting a car and plan to just take the metro and taxis while in the city. It won't be long, then I am moving on.

Public Transportation System in Athens

Can anyone give me some advice on the public transportation system in Athens, Greece?

I will be staying in Piraeus but will need to get around. I'll want to visit Acropolis area, as well as several other of the Athens neighborhoods.

Athens Metro Station with Artifacts?

What is the name of the metro station in Athens that has the artifacts on display? I heard about it and want to see it, but I am not sure it is worth going out of my way for. Is there more than ne to see?

I love artifacts and am just looking for more detail. I will be in the city for just a few days so I am really struggling if this is worth it or not.

Favorite Sunsets in Athens?

I am looking forward to seeing Athens again soon. Do you have a favorite sunset spot? My two favorites are Filopappou Hill and the area around the Acropolis. I am looking for some more ideas - I have a great camera and when I go to Greece, I love taking photos around sunset - even better if there is a great view of the sunset itself.
