Zappeion Hall

Between the National Gardens and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, lies a great place to wander around in Athens.  The Zappeion Exhibition Hall or simply Zappeion has been around for the past 131 years. Named after the main benefactor behind its construction, Evangelos Zappas, it represents his desire to give birth to the first building to serve Olympic needs. This explains the establishment’s proximity to the Kallimarmaro Stadium, located just a few meters away.
