Sunday morning, I felt the need to breathe loudly, to open my eye view, to smell the spring blossoms before the summer heat. The SNFCC Park was exactly what I wanted for my Sunday walk.
About SNF Culture Centre
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, is a state- of- the- art facility. The project was designed by Renzo Piano (his notable building, the Pompidou Center in Paris) and built by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. It includes the new buildings of the National Library, the National Opera and a Park that hosts various events.
The Mediterranean Garden, with olive trees, the paths among the flower beds,starts from the roofs of the buildings and gradually descends so smoothly that you do not always know where you are.
Thinks to do:
Read your book under the olive trees or enjoy the sun or rent a bike.
The incredible view :
From the main building the elevators drive the visitors to another surprise, the 900m glass-walled Lighthouse. A space to appreciate the view, a spectacular 360-degree views of the Athens.
