Be­naki Mu­seum

EME Outlook - - Athens -

“An­to­nis Be­nakis, a politi­cian’s son born in Alexan­dria, Egypt, in the late 19th cen­tury, en­dowed what is per­haps the finest mu­seum in Greece. Its three floors show­case im­pec­ca­ble trea­sures from the Bronze Age up to WWII. Es­pe­cially gor­geous are the Byzan­tine icons and the ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of Greek re­gional cos­tumes, as well as com­plete sit­ting rooms from Mace­do­nian man­sions, in­tri­cately carved and painted.” - Lonely Planet
