This tour will bring you to the new cultural gem of Athens, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC). 

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is a private philanthropic organization founded in 1996. Since then it has contributed with grants to the work of NGO’s in 124 nations around the globe. 

In 2017 the Foundation presented the Greek Society with its largest single gift to date: a Cultural hub designed to house the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO), as well as to provide Athens with a much-needed green space in the form of the 21-hectare Stavros Niarchos Park, which surrounds (and partially covers!) the impressive building complex.

Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center visit

A new look on the historical town


"You can walk up to the roof of the New Cultural Centre, passing through some lovely public gardens on the sloped roof of one of the buildings. From the main rooftop, you'll be able to overlook the marina's and get a gorgeous view of the sea and, if you're there at the right time of day, of the sunset.

Inside you'll find a sort of public library on the top floor, with a very laid-back atmosphere. There is also a small cupcake-and-coffee corner.[...]"
