The Be­naki Mu­seum ex­hi­bi­tion “Ghika – Crax­ton – Leigh Fer­mor: Charmed Lives in Greece” sheds light on the spe­cial friend­ship that bound the three em­blem­atic fig­ures of 20th cen­tury art and lit­er­a­ture, against the back­drop of the amaz­ing places that in­spired them: Hy­dra, Kar­damyli, Crete and Corfu. Through works of art by Nikos Had­jikyr­i­akos-Ghika and John Crax­ton, and writ­ings by Pa­trick Leigh Fer­mor, but also letters, manuscripts, publi­ca­tions, pho­to­graphs and tributes, the ex­hi­bi­tion also un­der­scores their love for Greece. Open­ing hours are Wed­nes­days to Fri­days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thurs­days and Satur­days from 9 a.m. to mid­night and Sun­days from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Ad­mis­sion costs 7 eu­ros, while guided tours are avail­able.
