Great place. One of most amazing and protected places in Athens. Education is still continue and it dates back to Academy of Plato.
Beautiful architecture, worth checking out This building is a modern representation of what classical Greek buildings would have looked like in their heyday. We did not go inside, but it was well worth driving by and seeing it from the outside. The red tourist double decker bus takes you right by it. Seeing this building helps ignite the imagination when visiting other ancient sites in the area. It is neat to be able to visualize what they would have looked like in their full glory.
Not to talk about the Academy as Foundation, since this is beyond me. However building itself decorates and dominates Athens. It represents the Ranaissance of a Nation and the connection of its vast History with the European Neoclassicism. A dozen of inspired Leaders and pioneer Architects transformed a village of 1800s (longly ruined during Byzantine age and the Otoman occupation), to come back to a City worthy of its diachronicity. Perhaps it is the most beautiful of the trilogia central Foundations, itself and the next National Library and Athens University. Metro Station is there and can enjoy a walk. You will find nearby cafeterias for coffee and refreshments. It is included in the most tourist Athens sightseeing packages.
Really nice and well preserved place!
The main building of the Academy of Athens is a beautiful masterpiece and if you go inside you will also find beautiful salons. There should have events (art exhibitions, displays, etc.) that are open to the general public on this side; at least a few times during the year so everyone can enjoy the beauty of this building.
