  • A small but very interesting museum. The upper floors tell some stories of the more recent Greece (maybe not great artworks but a historically interesting). The ground floor has a beautiful collection of antiquities. The bar & restaurant is in a wonderful terrace and the food is good.
  • Nice roof garden for a coffee or a snack. Fantastic views of surrounding city. This place is certainly worth a visit it's such a lovely building!
