Admire the exterior of white marble with neoclassical elements, as well as the spacious interior.

Splendid Greece Tours will continuing our private Jewish tour in Athens visiting Plaka the old historical neighborhood of Athens, right by the foot of the Acropolis. The oldest street in Athens Adrianou is still in use, home to many tourist shops. Right on the edge of the Plaka you will find new Jewish Museum, one of the finest Jewish museums in Europe. Experience your private tour by a museum representative, viewing items that had been confiscated from Greek Jews during the war, Ancient Hebrew books, and other items commemorating the Holocaust.
