A part of the Acropolis

This Temple is part of the Acropolis. Don't miss it off to the side, it has some very nice architecture.

Yet another structure atop the Acropolis! You just have to make a point to go to the Acropolis and see all the history in person!

Located on top of the Acropolis next to the Parthenon. So lots of steps to get here, some rough terrain, so not for every one. However if you can manage it, don't miss it

Bring water! Extra is always better!! Use good walking shoes, wear clothes which is okay to sweat in. You will be hiking , be careful with loose gravel and slippery rocks, if you see hand rails use them that's why they put them there in the first place. You don't want to risk rolling your ankle and not being able... More

It is a smaller temple part of the Acropole assembly. It is a nice one dedicated to the patron of the city the goddess Athena. The one that exist there it replace 2000 years ago an old woden temple.

The Temple of Athena Nike is off to the right as you are walking up the stairs in the Acropolis to the Parthenon. Worth it to snap a few pictures (make sure you have the most wide angle lens possible). Would be nice to get up closer to it, but sadly not possible.

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
