We had a close view of the temple but could not go in. It's beautiful both from far view or close view.

From a distance, this temple is beautiful. Unfortunately for us, there was lots of restoration work going on, and we could not get close.

This small temple of Athena Nike has been restored from pieces at least 2 times but it preserves most of its original stones etc. One of the great sights of the Acropolis...

The title says it. Can only view the place from a distance because of all the restoration work going on.

It's v impressive really makes you wander how on earth they build such a building. I was disappointed they they did not have audio unless you hire a Guide which can turn out to be quite expensive if you go to all sights. Unless you are an archeologist or historian you will be impressed by what you see but not... More

A temple on the right side of the entrance to the Acropolis. Unfortunately, it's closed for visiting, so you can look at it only from a distance. Exact proportions of a classical Greek taste.

On the hills of Acropolis, you'll find the temple of the goddess that has the same name as the city.

What a beautiful place to be. Worth a visit. And just think about then people of 2000 years ago and what they did in this temple. Imagine their life and work.

I just cant get over how well these beautiful temples have stood the ravages of time. I tend to just stand in awe and wonder what life was really like back then and at The Temple of Athena all sorts of images came to mind. She must have been a pretty impressive person because her temple is fabulous.Loved the visit.

As you enter the Parthenon you pass the temple to the goddess NIKE. Which in Greek means win, and actually is where Nike brand attained its name from. A temple within a temple.
