Lighthouse - Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre Foundation

Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC) is a new Athens landmark, on the edge of Faliro Bay. The SNFCC Lighthouse sits on top of the new home of the Greek National Opera, protected by the “Magic Carpet,” an energy-producing canopy made of photovoltaic panels spanning ten hectares. Like every lighthouse, the SNFCC Lighthouse is encased in glass, offering panoramic views of Athens, Piraeus and the Saronic Gulf, as well as direct visual connection to the Acropolis hill. Surrounding this glass space, the Lighthouse offers an open-air space, sheltered by the canopy. You can reach the top of the Lighthouse either by using the lift located at the Agora or by walking through the Stavros Niarchos Park.

Yacht Club of Greece

It is a Club with great history and one to which sailing in Greece owes its tremendous development. The Club is located on the peninsula of Piraeus, at the ancient Athenian
military port of «Mounihia». This port is one of three historic naval stations of the Ancient Athenian Democracy. It is small and picturesque and, despite still retaining its ancient name, is now best known as Mikrolimano. The Yacht Club’s main building is situated at the top of the hill of the Piraeus peninsula, at the southwestern end of Mikrolimano. The view from the building is breathtaking, stretching from the Faliron and Saronic gulf to the islands of Salamina, Aegina and Poros and back to Athens and the surrounding mountains. At a closer angle, the Club is surrounded by beautiful groomed gardens. The “Winds” Room has a capacity of 160 seated people and, in summer time, it integrates the veranda area to sum up a space that could
receive 220 persons.

Zappeion Megaron

Located in the heart of the city of Athens, the Zappeion Megaron was the first building in the world to be constructed in order to serve Olympic needs. Its architecture is in the neoclassical order, with a Corinthian portico, and an organisation of spaces that is fully in harmony with the purpose for which it was built. This building, the three-arched stone bridge over the Ilissus River that had been repaired, also at the expense of Evangelis Zappas, and the surrounding gardens give a charming picture of Athens in the early 20th century. The Zappeion Exhibition Hall has witnessed the history of Athens for the last 120 years. It has been a key site for some of the nation’s most significant moments, and has always been integrally linked to the Olympic Movement. Even though its uses were varied, it has become a landmark in the Greek capital, thus fulfilling the donor’s initial wishes.
