Seeing the acropolis and the caryatids has been a goal and was more that I had hoped. The physical size of the actual building plus the ability for a closeup look at the actual statues in the museum was memorable.

This is another structure atop the Acropolis that is wonderful to behold in person! Remember, I'm an archeology nerd!

Definitely worth going, make sure your mobile battery is fully charged! Safety on walk wear, none slippery, stairs and walk ways are marbles or pebbles. Hardly any railing, but I am sure the authorities will do something about safety features soon.

Prepare for slippery surfaces and walk the entire acropolis site to see all the structures and take in the views.

See my review of the Acropolis for a full summary but right next to the parthenon and almost fully restored. A note the original statues are now in the Acropolis museum. These are replicas.

It is hard to comprehend just how old this place is.....if only the walls could speak I am sure they would give us thousands of stories from across the centuries
