Temple of the Athena is one of favorites here, including the Parthenon and Erechtheion. Not to be missed are the beautiful views of the City of Athens from the distance. Note the inclined, uphill walk to visit these attractions. Pace yourself, bring some water and...More

This temple is quite exceptional. The recovery of this building has accentuated its beauty and has allowed its preservation. It is right there when you enter the Acropole. The view of the city from up here is unlike anything you'll ever see.

The Temple of Athena Nike on the Acropolis is a great example of the restoration work being done on the ancient monuments. Care is taken to make sure it is historically accurate. Must check it out when visiting the Acropolis.

A unique place with a special kind of energy in the air. The history of this place and the fact that you can actually be so close to something that dates back thousands of years makes it such a memorable experience!

Nike Temple is not quite visible in Acropolis, especially on a busy day. It is located on a very right (while walking up), and may be easily missed. On-going reconstruction and limited access do not help, but it is still one of three main Acropolis'...More

We found out on the last day when we visited Cape Sounion that there were 3 temples for Athena in Athens set in a triangle. This one is the most well-preserved since the one at Cape Sounion is just a few stones on the ground....More
