National Gardens of Athens a few months ago I came accross the Zappeio, built for the modern Olympics in the 1880s and later for meetings of the European Union. Like old parliament hose Canberra (but much grander), this is now used for conferences and exhibitions.
On the day I was there some office workers were playing a very fast ball game outside and the Republic of Yemen was having a cultural display inside. There is a pleasant looking but expensive restaurant on the south east side of the Zappeio.
