What people are saying about National Archaeological Museum of Athens

I highly recommend taking a guided tour of this museum, especially speaking as someone who doesn’t typically seek out museums. We really got to learn the context and significance of all the artifacts and sculptures in the museum and how that relates to the history of ancient and modern Greece, all in a way that simply wouldn’t be possible without a guide. If you are going to Athens, you should take this tour.

Practical and efficient this combo will allow you to access the three most important attractions of the city.
