We visited very early on a Sunday morning; the sun was shining and it wasn't yet busy so I think we saw it at its best. No matter how much you read about this building, it still brings you to a standstill. It is unexpected...More

Never thought that these people 2500 years ago would be able to install such a thing. Very nice indeed. Today couldn’t be possible cause of city planning restrictions.

Always wanted to visit this place since I studied it in the high school. Unfortunately it is not possible to walk inside but the outside view is great. It is said that Pericles gave speeches about democracy in the porch of Caryatids. Essential.

The maidens on the Acropolis are plastic copies of the originals now in the Acropolis Museum to prevent them melting further in the caustic climate around Athens. Great video shows how they are cleaning off the black soon covering the originals.
