The sunset views are great. The crowds are a little heavy to easily take photos, but with some patients they are available.

The Temple of Nike is one of the many attractions of the Acropolis HIll. Unlike most others, this temple is quite far away from the tourist and cannot be walked to. Yet, it is a charming and impressive temple, though fades away in the shade of the freat Parthenon here.

Really nice looking little temple, but you can only really look from afar which makes it a bit less impressive

The temple is beautiful located and impressive to see. However, there is room to improvement when it comes to information. There was no information whatsoever with regard to the function and use of the temple.
