Nice little temple

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! The Rakimelo is strongly recommended (raki liquor made of cinnamon and honey)!

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.

On my way to the Parthenon, all the way on top of the Acropolis mountain, our tour guide shows us this ancient temple of Athena Nike. Because of the location, this temple can view from far, but because of th size of the building (compared to Parthenon) difficult to recognise. Ruins, but still the building there. The frieze of this... More

When you stand in front of the temple, you have to wonder about the many myths that we have heard and read about. It makes you think about just how creative and imaginative people must have been to build such beautiful temples and buildings.

Overshadowed by the Parthenon and view from the Acropolis. I liked this quiet spot (because it's winter, I guess). Wish I can enter and imagine that I am a priestess. the statues in front are replicas, and the originals are in the museum.

This gorgeous temple is well-preserved, and a dedication to the goddess of victory in war, Athena. You will see it as soon as you enter the Acropolis before the Parthenon

Such a treat to walk up the stairs through the massive gateway entrance – the Propylaea. We entered the Acropilis the same way the ancient Athenians did. As we entered we saw the Temple of Athena Nike to our right. This was the earliest “Iconic” temple on site. Athena was the goddess of victory in war and wisdom. Simply Amazing!
