Enjoyable tour. Museum was fabulous. Unfortunately, the guide didn't wait for us (we were in the bathroom) to start his museum tour. We had to scramble but the tour we were invited to join up with was excellent and we learned a lot. So it actually worked out for the best.

The Acropolis Museum is an absolute must-see. It is built over some ruins which is so unique. The arrangement of the exhibits is also unique, but the most amazing thing is the re-creation of the Parthenon on the 3rd level. Just wonderful.
