You need to walk up the stairs and through the structure in order to gain entrance into the Acropolis to see the Parthenon and Erechtheion. It's very impressive.

This was an amazing entrance to the Acropolis with a grand staircase, vision of the Temple of Nike and views to the city below. It was raining at the time and was a bit slippery, so be careful if you face similar conditions.
