“Very popular, a trendy place in Kolonaki. Classic upscale Italian restaurant with pizza, pasta and meat dishes. Very nice overall but pricey. I suggest sitting outside for drinks, munchies and people watching! :)”

Science Museum
“The Goulandris Natural History Museum was founded in 1965 by Angelos and Niki Goulandris in order to promote the interest for natural sciences and it is housed at a beautiful building at the area of Kifissia. From its foundation until the present days it is a model for creating an awareness to the public and protecting –mainly– endangered species. So, if you are excited by the world of plants and animals, a visit here is necessary. It possesses exhibition areas that deal with Botany, Entomology, Hydrobiology, Geology, Herpetology, Ornithology and Paleontology. It is worth noting that the first exhibition areas of the museum (biology of plants) have been designed by the British Museum of Natural History. The museum possesses one of the best educational departments with excellent activities, and a wonderful garden with many trees, bushes and a great variety of plants. Among them stands out the very tall Lebanon cedar at the centre of the garden. Furthermore, here is the café Ammonites and the Museum Café-Restaurant where you can enjoy cool beverages, your coffee or cold dishes and snacks.”
