This temple with its famous sculptures is perhaps the most charming part of the Acropolis. The original sculptures are now in museums (in Athens). I've always like the size and proportions of this temple as it seems far more real and scaled to humans than...More

An absolute must for everyone visiting Athens Acropolis. A masterpiece of Ancient Art with a talkative history through ages. You only can imagine how this monument was in pristine condition.

Most visitors to the Acropolis will have seen The Erchtheion and just not realised what it was. As with The Acropolis I would recommend a very early start to get the best pictures and to avoid the mob. This is just inside the site of...More

This is a temple located within the Acropolis next to the Parthenon. It's reasonably well preserved and worth looking at, but is not as impressive as the Parthenon itself.

I think this was my favorite structure on top of the Acropolis. The Carytids are incredible and so powerful in it's representation of the ancient society that was ancient Greece.

Erectheion is much better preserved than the far bigger Parthenon. This is actually mainly due to a gunpowder magazine exploding in the Parthenon in 1687 - up to that point it remained mostly intact. Anyway, the Erectheion is no ruin. Be sure to check out...More

Erechtheion and its statues are wonderful. Right in front of Parthenon, this small temple is a perfect architectural achievement. One of the original statues is in London, British Museum. It is a fact that the British Ambassador got from the Turkish ruler of Athens the...More

Walking up on the Acropolis and seeing the ruins there also brings you to this building. The sculptures are beautiful and there is plenty of room to walk around this building to see something that has stood the endless years and are here for you...More
