Floating Naval Museum—Battleship Georgios Averof
The decommissioned armored cruiserGeorgios Averof is one of two legendary Greek naval ships that have been transformed into floating museums; built in Italy during the first years of the 20th century, she served in the First Balkan War, played a major part in both world wars and patrolled the Indian Ocean as the flagship of the Greek fleet and was taken out of combat in 1952. The Navy restored and reopenedAverof as the Floating Naval Museum—Battleship Georgios Averof in 1984; today four decks are open for public scrutiny, including the officers’ sumptuous quarters, engine rooms, cramped accommodation cabins, the chapel and kitchens are all on show among uniforms, weaponry, navigational charts, medals and many black-and-white images of the ship in mid battle. TheAverof museum is manned and managed by the Greek Navy and opening hours are liable to be erratic, so check ahead online before visiting. She is moored up in Flisvou Marina, with the former naval ship Velos close by as well as a replica trireme calledOlympias; it’s a pleasant place to wander around while spotting the gleaming, modern super-yachts bobbing in the water. Otherwise incorporate a visit to the ship into a cycle tour of Athens Riviera.
