Come explore more than togas and ruins at The Benaki Museum of Greek Culture. This jaw-dropping neoclassical-style building is an art piece on its own, and was converted into a museum purely to house Antonis Benakis' treasures.

The collection of Prehistoric, Ancient Greek and Roman antiquities showcases items from the dawn of Prehistory to the end of the Roman era. The post-Byzantine and neo-Hellenic exhibition covers ecclesiastical and secular art from the 15th to the 19th century.

The Byzantine collection links ancient and modern Greece via stunning paintings, while an array of historical heirlooms walks you through the history of modern Greece, from the end of the 18th century to today.

An art lover's treat in Athens!
