National Archaeological Museum

After our visit to the museum, we retrace the itinerary backwards, until we reach the junction of the two avenues, Patission and Panepistimiou. At this point we locate the pedestrian crossing and we turn right, crossing Patission Ave. and proceeding on the opposite pavement of Patission. We leave the buildings on the interior side of the pavement on our right and we continue straight, being on the pavement of Panepistimiou Ave. now, having the street on our left.

We continue straight and we seek outthe tactile paving. We follow it towards the right to reach the Panepistimiou entrance of the Omonia metro station of lines 1 and 2.
