Beautiful landmark for photo opportunity. You will get to walk the park around there. Very nice environment in the late afternoon as the weather is cool down a little bit.

This building is located in a park. You can visit it via the city tour bus or on foot. If you haven't seen the real thing in Greece, this is a great reproduction

Stunning reproduction of the Greek Parthenon. We enjoyed reading about the history of the construction. The upper level statue of Athena is breathtaking. It’s a must see in Nashville!

You can’t visit Nashville, aka the “Athens of the South” and not stop by the Parthenon. Great green space and cool pictures!
