On Thursday, 28 June 2011, οur students visit the permanent collections of the Benaki Museum.
Νear the end of the intensive June period, students from our Beginners course visited the permanent collections of the Benaki Museum, housed in a lovely neoclassical mansion in the heart of Athens. They admired important works of art from all periods of Greek civilization, as well as examples of Islamic Art. What impressed them most were the collections of the Byzantine icons and the genuine traditional costumes from all parts of Greece.
After their visit, they all enjoyed cool refreshments in the Museum’s Roof Garden and shared their impressions in Greek!
