If you don’t want to ‘waste’ your precious time once in Athens hopping from one museum to another, but you are still interested in getting a first-hand insight into Greece’s rich cultural past, yes, there is hope for you too! All you have to do is visit the main Benaki Museum. It could be described as the synopsis of the Greek museums, exhibiting artifacts from prehistoric times to the 20th century.

This is the final stop in our journey in Euboea. We left for the end the archaeological site and the charming small museum of Eretria on our way back home. The truth is that Euboea was a big surprise for us. It was much more interesting than we expected which explains why we managed to explore only half of the island. We have many reasons to return!
It goes without saying that you will visit it regardless of whether you like archeology or not. The New Acropolis Museum is ranking high in all listing of the best museums in the world, despite the fact that it is a thematic archaeological museum. In contrast with the other multicultural ‘stars’ as the Louvre, the Prado or the Hermitage, all exhibits in displays are from Acropolis hill, just across the road . It’s not only majestic, it’s controversial too!!!
