A time travel to the everyday life, art, religious practices and customs of the Byzantine and Medieval periods of Greece. Reconstruction of parts of early churches, wonderfully preserved mosaic floors and wall paintings. It is worth seeing the ecclesiastical artifacts from the earliest years of Christianity. Maybe the wide range of Byzantine and post-Byzantine icons will whet your appetite for a church tour in Athens. It was once the villa of the eccentric French-American phihellene Duchess of Plaisance who was so inspired by the Greek War of Independence that she decided to fund a museum.
