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.

Acropolis is a must see. Acropolis museum is very nice. Go to museum first so you get some history. Spend time at the museum cafe, which is ranked high and not expensive.

This temple is incredibly well preserved and restored. Having such an extensive history it is amazing to be able to see this temple standing. Even though you cannot get close to it, it is still worth looking at from the Propylaea. The sculpture is kept close within the Acropolis museum but it is cool to see all of the casts... More

Our family liked this temple more than the Parthenon. It celebrated an actual woman, which was unusual, and the building is in better repair.
