Athens’ museums, we have to say, give great bang for their buck. They tell the tale of the city’s riveting ancient history and display epic sculptures that have inspired artists like Picasso down the centuries. And yet, their regular admission fees are pretty low compared to much of Europe. The deal gets even better from November when every state-owned museum and monument in Athens waives its entrance fee for the first Sunday of every month until the end of March (yes, even the Acropolis and the brilliant Acropolis Museum).
Here are some more fantastic sites that you can see for free over this period: The National Archeological Museum, The Byzantine and Christian Museum, Numismatic Museum, The Ancient Agora of Athens and Museum of the Ancient Agora, The Archaeological Museum of Kerameikos, The Temple of Olympian Zeus (Olympieio), The Roman Agora of Athens and the Tower of the Winds, Hadrian’s Library, Aristotle’s Lyceum (Archaeological site of Lykeion), and the Kanellopoulos Museum.
