Walk down Leoforos Vasilissis Sofias and you’ll stumble across three fantastic museums. In fact, they are so well-regarded that the street has now been dubbed the “Museum Mile of Athens”. The first stop, the Byzantine and Christian Museum, features Christian art from the Early Christian era to Byzantine and Medieval exhibits. Among the 25,000 artefacts on show are frescoes, miniature sculptures and gold-leaf paintings. Just down the road, the Museum of Cycladic Art highlights artworks from the Cycladic culture, which dominated islands in the Aegean Sea from the 33rd century BC to the 12th century BC. There are also regular temporary exhibitions. Finally, the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture, which is located in the Benakis family’s mansion, hosts a wide-ranging collection of artworks, including Byzantine, Chinese and Roman art. On the way to your next stop, look out for Aristotle’s Lyceum – the remains of a temple that was once dedicated to Apollo, and where Aristotle founded a school of philosophy.
