One of the top attractions at Acropolis hill. The original statues are in the Acropolis Museum and one is in the British Museum in London (a shame!). So what you see are copies, but anyway it is an icon and must see during a stay in Athens.

Went early. Crowds ok. Clear views. Cladding round one side shame but get why they need to do it. But true icon of western history.

The best way to see these sights is with a knowledgable driver, we used Greece Private Tours, you learn more instead of just looking at another ruins

All of the sites on top of the Acropolis are incredible! Don't hesitate to take the short walk to the top.

The originals are in the Acropolis museum. Just go their to see them close up. They look great there. I don't know why they didn't do a full restoration on the replicas.

Seeing the Erechtheion, with its 6 Caryatids ( the original 5 are at the Acropolis Museum, 1 is in the British Museum), was awe inspiring. We followed up with a visit to the Acropolis Museum, that allowed us to examine the original Caryatids close up).

This site is part of the Acropolis complex. What more can I say? If you go to Greece as a tourist and visit the ruins this one has to be in your itinerary.

Even though the pillars aren't originals, you can't tell, and it really gives you a feel of how it would have looked. Stunning.
