Atelier Vassiliou, Lalaounis Jewelery Museum

A unique event setting amid the works of one of the most reputed contemporary Greek painters, Atelier Vassiliou is the house where the artist used to live and it includes his workshop. This house- turned- museum, houses 120 works by the painter and also temporary exhibits from time to time. It is located just under the Acropolis across the Herodus Atticus Theater. After your guided tour of the museum, you will have time to relax in what used to be the family's dining room now converted to an intimate coffee shop for a short coffee break with cakes and cookies.

You will then proceed by foot on the newly converted Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian street just below the Acropolis, to the Lalaounis Jewelry Museum. This is a one of its kind museum housing over 4,000 pieces of jewelry and miniature artifacts designed by the world famous Ilias Lalaounis from 1940-2000.
