Exquisite Renovation

Athenes Nike temple greats you when you enter the Akropolis gate. The pristine reconstruction with the original stones proudly stands on the right of Propylaea on a steep bastion.

It is worth seeing as part of the Acropolis. It is a smaller, older temple. Worth seeing as part of the visit.

It was a pleasure to see this at the Acropolis, although it's a shame that due to renovation work it is not possible to get right up close to the temple.

Amazing! One of those sites you have to see. Walking up the hill requires some effort, so go early when it is still cool, and bring water.

I hope to go there when the restorative work is done, it was still beautiful to see. One could not get to the temple up close, it could only be seen from the stairs at the bottom as you go in.

It´s a great place with an amazing background. I suggest visiting this places with some history background, because it could be that you be amaze with the ruins but not really understanding what´s going on.

It is part of the Acropolis complex so there is no way of missing it. But do pay attention to it, and pay your respects. It is emotional and beautiful, as everything around it. What a place!

A wonderful demonstration of an ancient Greek temple - although this has been substantially restored, it's still mystic and interesting.
