The ancient neighborhood beneath the Acropolis Museum reveals life in ancient Athens long before the Parthenon and the sculptures on Acropolis hill were even created.

The remains of the ancient Athenian neighborhood, uncovered during the excavations to lay the foundation for the Acropolis Museum, show a place that was teeming with life for centuries.

Archaeologists brought to light an entire neighborhood with a constant human presence from classical times until the Byzantine era.
