Generally considered one of the best museums in the world, the Acropolis Museum regularly earns the highest ratings as one of the architectural masterpieces in Greece and even in the whole world! As a luminous box perched above Athens, it has been devoted to the Parthenon and its surrounding temples. This evocative experience is made even more powerful by the large glass panes that seamlessly blend ancient and modern parts of the city. It was designed by Bernard Tschumi and Michael Photiadis of New York to hold ancient artifacts found adjacent to and around the Acropolis, and it successfully recreates how the Parthenon sculptures must have appeared to the citizenry of ancient Athens.

An architectural masterpiece surrounded by olive trees and pillared by concrete, the museum in Makrigianni reveals the site's archaeological dig below. Originally, the neighborhood featured a drainage system, bathhouses and mosaics, as well as its own drainage system.

Continue your journey through Greece by visiting the capital of Zeus's birthplace – Crete – Heraklion, admire glorious Olympia, go for a walk in Santorini island and chill on the fanciest beaches of Mykonos!
