What you see and what you can hear at the Theocharakis Foundation for Fine Art and Music will depend on when you visit. When we were there we saw an exhibition of painting from the island of Rhodes... more »
Very fine art museum. Also concerts and other happenings. Worth of visit.
For 7 euros for an entrance fee in times of crisis, I expect at least a smile from the man in the ticket booth who put me on hold without even eye contact. I expect my order at the cafe to be just what I ordered and not something similar and my bill to be the exact amount and not one made by mistake. If I didn't notice, you'd charge me extra. So naturally I demand an apology and not an evasive excuse from the waitress. Manners are caught not taught, I guess. I expect the personnel to be quiet in the exhibition rooms and not stay behind doors and giggle and shout while I'm looking at the paintings. Simple as that. I expect the man at the entrance of the exhibition to remember me and not ask for my ticket in a highbrow style only 10 min. after I entered because he left his post and simply forgot my face. I wouldn't try to cheat by entering for free, would I? Well, on the whole the building was beautiful and the exhibition small and interesting but the personnel let me down. I guess they are underpaid like all the workers in Greece so I can't really blame them. I wish myself better luck next time....
