You will not miss it when get uphill of the acropolis, a must see and although it is a duplicate, you will find the beauty of the six goddess! Find them in the acropolis museum and you will appreciate the sculptures more!

“Athens break 2013”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

This was interesting and I learned why there is all the fuss about the Elgin Marbles ( and why I now think they should be returned) You can see the 5 Kores in the Acropolis Museum, which is a must see, when you have done the Acropolis, though not on the same day - as both will take a lot of time and energy

“Loved it”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was a beautiful place, we were later to see the caryatids in the Acropolis museum as the ones on the building are reproductions, all but one sadly she is in the British museum which is a great shame as seeing her there made me sad that she should be with the others. It's time she was returned. A magical building worth the visit.

“Simply beautiful”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Housed in Acropolis, the Erechtheion is a must see. Needless to say, if you visit the Acropolis there is no way you'd miss it. As mentioned before, individuals who love photography would love the site as a whole!
