Museum visit

Last weekend we visited the Hellenic Maritime Museum. A visit like that is a treat! There are simply so many paintings, memorabilia, maps, logs, figurines, books and many more things to gaze at that a single visit is just not enough.

I have been many times before to this museum. This time though, I decided to take some photos of artefacts that I find inspiring and share them with you.

If any of you find yourselves in this part of Peiraeus, do take the time to discover its treasures. It's all well worth it.

Yours,
