Early morning low season we found to be the perfect time to visit. Arriving before the 8am opening we walked through the monumental gate on our own. Stunning in its grandeur, it is a magnificent entry. Albeit never completed due to the start of Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens in 431 BCE. Governing entry to the sacred Acropolis in antiquity, it was special to follow in the footsteps and to see the Parthenon Temple to Athena coming into view. On passing through it was grand to turn around and admire it from another perspective.

This is the huge entrance with buildings at either side up to the Acropolis area. A lot of restoration has taken place including putting a little of the roof back in place. There is a lot of work still to do but still a fabulous and impressive structure to stop and admire before moving on to the Parthenon. We visited during the pandemic and there was a one way system in place.

Propylea is the ornamental imposing entrance to the Acropolis. Part of it is intact. We are left wondering how the Greeks built such imposing structures with huge columns and beams, on top of a hill centuries ago.

The monumental gateway was used in ancient Greek architecture. The typical Greek example is the propylaea that serves as the entrance to the Acropolis in Athens. Walking past begins the adventure of viewing the Acropolis ruins.

This is the beautiful gateway which is the main entrance and exit to the main attractions at the top of the Acropolis. Be sure to get there early as this is where most people congregate and therefore it is very difficult to move around freely or get decent photos with so many people doing the same thing.
