NileGuide Expert tip:
Travel way back in time and see the finest ancient Greek treasures. A must must see.
The National Archeological Museum is a must. If you only have time to visit one museum, this one should be it. There is a lot to see so plan at least two to three hours here. It isn't a bad idea to become acquainted with the museum's collections prior to visiting. This is the best way to explore Greece's history. After your visit to the museum, stop for lunch at Athinaikon or Ideal. Then walk up Panepistimiou street to see the National Library, the Academy of Athens, and the University of Athens. These three buildings are located right at the Panepistimio metro stop.
