Top Museum of the World: Acropolis Museum

Designed by renowned Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi and notable Greek architect Michalis Photiadis, the Acropolis Museum captivates guests on approach.  Its seamless modern lines elegantly incorporate artifacts exclusively from the Acropolis, and excavations are also visible under glass floors and walkways.  The marbled surviving treasures are impressively displayed with the use of natural light, situated on a modernist open layout.  Panoramic views top the experience.

The tour ends at the Acropolis Museum.
