Goulandris Museum of Cycladic ArtThis museum is small but perfectly formed, just like the enigmatic marble figurines that are the centerpiece of its collection. Their stark yet sensual forms inspired modern artists like Picasso and Modigliani. On the top floor, a virtual tour of everyday life in antiquity sheds light on ancient attitudes on desire and death, religion and warfare. The courtyard café, with its marble benches, floating roof and wall-to-ceiling plants, serves refined dishes inspired by the Cyclades.
