Athens' Byzantine Museum

Recommended
A fascinating museum laid out along modern didactic lines, which takes us through a millennium of history from late Antiquity to the fall of Byzantium and from the birth of Christian art to more recent times when Byzantine churches adhered to rigid architectural conventions. Exhibits include reconstructions of local churches, and icons and illuminated manuscripts from Byzantium's last golden age.
