  • Extraordinary place to visit. You can cycle, run and do whatever activities you would like. There's also fitness equipment placed in one spot of the whole foundation. And the best, ping pong tables are there. You can drink your coffee while it's an ideal place for kids to play. Awesome view from the top of foundation's building.
  • A masterpiece of architecture thought and built with best in class ecological features. Hosting the Greek National Library and the Greek Opera House. The park is a peaceful area for relaxing around the olive trees, enjoy the surrounding views of Athens and discover lots of attractions. Can can also enjoy the indoor restaurant but also several coffee shops with nice terraces. Parking is indoors and comes with a fee. Opera House proposes a nice program. In summer lots of outside events are proposed, like open movie theatre. A must see.
