A must.

It was taller than what I thought it would be. A must while in Athens. I suggest a hat, sunglasses, and a bottle of water. It was hot and sunny the day I went.

The Parthenon is central to the Acropolis and was the chief temple dedicated to the Greek Goddess Athena. Access requires walking and can be a challenge, however, the rewards are great! Although the marble structure has suffered damage over the years, the temple remains largely intact as restoration continues and is truly magnificent and inspiring!

Athena was the goddess of wisdom so she wanted Athens to be her city. After you visit Parthenon and erechtheion you could say she was quite right about it. The temple is dedicated to her,and it was built during the gold century of Periklis and with the best architects Iktinos and Callicratis. Awe is the feeling that causes you a... More

I had that strange feeling when I got to the Parthenon, It reminded me of Yanni when he had his concert there on 1992, it's beautiful and magical.

Besides the pollution and crowds of Athens, a visit to the Parthenon is a highlight of any European trip.

Absolutely fascinating looks really impressive from a distance. However the cranes present on site spoil the view. It is not like the picture you see above. The acropolis is still reasonable to go to 12 euros per person.

It's part of the acropolis. It's being worked on still but still accessible enough to take pictures at

My daughter had wanted to visit here since doing a collage study on Greek Mythology. It was nice to visit as a family. The walk up was easier than it looks from the Plaka. Sunny and blue sky. A security type man explained to me that it was forbidden to take phonographs of UppyALf in front of the monuments which... More
