Cape Sounio, which is a little more than an hour away from Athens, holds many treasures. The foremost of them is undoubtedly the lovely temple of Poseidon. The God of water has been honored very aptly at sea.
Sitting on the sea-face, the decently preserved monument is a lovely ode to Poseidon. The mighty columns look gorgeous against the backdrop of the blue sea. The positioning of the temple itself is quite dramatic and makes it worth the visit.
Besides the temple of Poseidon there are a couple of other Greek marvels along the way so do make it a point to see them as well. Not far from the city, this temple makes for a wonderful and refreshing day trip.

Great Museum with an easy layout. Was greeted as I entered and given a map. I also happened to go on Sunday when it was free but the price isn't too bad anyway. Definitely a must see if you aren't too hot on Greeces more modern history like me. Definitely recommend.
Objects related to the Greek revolution (swords, guns, flags, coins etc), interesting paintings and many other items. Watched the special exhibition about the 1st world war which has been extended to early December and is not to be missed - you actually go into a 'trench' and get a feeling of what it must have been like.
Great experience.... not a must see but you will enjoy everything inside its great to see all the guns and swords inside probably one of the best weapons I have see preserved thru out the years...
It was cool place to visit and some cool stuff to see,like lots of older guns and some national dresses and paintings theirs past heroes...to sumarize,unfortunatly thats all whats left,as most greek history is to be found in Louvre or London museums,like rich stuff,so only left for greeks were the guns and paintings of their fallen heroes to remeber...still cool place for short visit,as ofc it isnt the size of Louvre or London museums,but still i liked it as Greeks are very proud people and j respect them for it...
A great museum that specialises displaying artifacts relating to the founding of the Greek nation when it gained independence from the ottomans. It also used to be a Parliament house so you can see the old parliamentary seating as well.
