The Acropolis Museum

Up until the summer of 2009 visiting the museu of Acropolis was a bit of a dissapointement compared to the level of exchibits within it. The need for an improved house for sections of the Parthenon and other astounding collections was an idea that initially began during the 70s. 

The new Acropolis Museum has a total area of 25,000 square meters, with exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters, ten times
more than that of the old museum on the Hill of the Acropolis. The new Museum offers all the amenities expected in an international museum of the 21st century.

The legendary Grande Bretagne, one of Athens's most distinguished 19th-century buildings, is back after a $70-million, 2-year renovation.

From Winston Churchill to Sting, the guests who stay here expect the highest level of attention. The Grande Bretagne prides itself on its service; you are unlikely to be disappointed.
