There are several impressive structures on top of the Acropolis and visitors should really make an attempt to see them all. Like the other buildings this one is probably about 2,500 years old and the remains stand as a testament to the skill of the stonemasons who built it.

If you're already on the Acropolis, you should make a point to stop and see the Temple of Athena Nike. We found that everything there is worth seeing. And our guide was very good about explaining the history.

It's lovely to see this temple..from far away ;-( we couldn't enjoy it much from 20m distance ;-((( i just wish that all archeological sites not that far away from the visitors to see, at least within proper distance ;-)

I recently visited the Tempio di Athena Nike during my 5 day trip to Athens. A lovely small temple in the Acropolis complex, it is a beautiful old structure that is part of the rich ancient history of Athens and Greece. Highly recommended to be visited during your Acropolis trip!

You need to know some history to imagine what it was in the past but this is history and you need to go there. This temple is well kept and def worth looking at

Easy to miss, it is just to the side of the Prophylaea before you enter. It is a tiny little temple, but make sure to take a look at it.

Overshadowed by the Parthenon and the Erechtheion, this is still amazing and in very good condition. The 12 Euro Acropolis entry ticket gives you access to this and many other ancient sites. If you're going to the Acropolis to see the Parthenon you should see this to as it is right there, essentially next door to the Parthenon. Get there... More

Very friendly and nice owners. Very nice place and different from the tourism context in which it is.this was a pretty hip place in athens, lots of locals here, which ought to tell you something!!!ALEX MANCINI. Very good bar!

This tiny temple, located on your right when you enter the Acropolis via the Propylaea, is almost always overlooked, as everyone is so eager to see the (somehow overrated) Parthenon. Still, it's worth your while to stop for a couple of minutes and examine this little 2400 year-old gem.

Small temple see at the entrance to the Acropolis but rather neglected by the guides but well worth exploring.
