  • Explore Islamic art in a stunning neo-classical mansion in Athens
  • See weaves, porcelain, jewellery, and even a 17th-century reception room from Cairo
  • Soak up amazing city views from the rooftop cafe - why not stay for lunch?

Discover two buildings full of amazing artworks from the east at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art. See ancient porcelain, weaves, jewelry, and even a piece of the not-so-Islamic Themistoklean wall down in the basement!

Done with the Acropolis and the Parthenon? Step into a different side of Athens and a world of Islamic art, located in a huge mansion.

The Benaki Museum of Islamic art takes you on a journey over five floors, to discover one of the world’s most significant collections of art from the Middle East and the Persian empire.

Weave your way around weavings, examine sparkling jewels, ponder over porcelain, and even see a reception room from a marble-covered 17th-century Cairo mansion!

Don't forget to head down to the basement, where you can still see part of the exposed, ancient Themistoklean wall, built as a defence measure after the Persian Wars. For views of Kerameikos, head to the top floor cafe!
