Definitely part of a (self-guided) tour of the area. It's one of the important aspects of the surrounding area so you really can't miss it...unless you're in a rush.

When entering Acropolis, to the right of Propylaea is this beautiful little temple. Ask your guide to show you if not done already. You can get there, just make sure you have solid shoes and protection from sun.

We went with children aged 5 and 8 and they really enjoyed touring the Acropolis. I agree with other reviews that this could be easy to miss- I highly recommend going with a tour guide. We had many people stop our tour guide to ask him questions and he didn't take long to explain to them the answer. It's important... More

After you climb the sidewalk to the Acropolis, you'll come to a long set of stairs; if you look to the right, you'll see the four columns and relatively small structure of Athena Nike on the edge of a sheer wall. Climb the stairs and as you go through the Propylaea (monumental entrance to the Acropolis)- the Temple of Athena... More
