Description:

The Acropolis (Akropoli) station, located on newly pedestrian Makrigianni Street, is on the red line one stop after the FIX station and one before Syntagma. What's so special about a metro stop? Besides giving you easy access to the New Acropolis Museum, the longest pedestrian road in Europe, Aereopagitou Street, the Acropolis, and Plaka, it has ancient everyday vessels found during digging, replicas of some of the treasures of the Acropolis and is lined with copies of the famous "marbles" taken by England's Lord Elgin in the 19th century. There's also a fantastic blown up engraving of what the old Military hospital (opposite the New Acropolis Museum) looked like during Ottoman times and a giant photograph of the modern goddess, Melina Mercouri, where you wait for the trains.

Connected to fourteen stations, near Hera Hotel, Philappos and Herodion
