Owner description: The earliest Ionic building on the Acropolis, this small temple of the goddess of victory depicts assemblies of the gods and Greek battles against the Barbarians and the Boeotians.
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Located right on one edge of the Acropolis on a precarious-looking platform, this temple looks light and elegant. You can almost imagine this Winged Goddess of Victory taking off from here.

Like the others have said, you can't go in, but it is quite lovely. You may just miss it if you aren't careful, as it's before you enter the Acropolis proper. And with a million tour groups, it may be hard to snag a picture of it.

Great pictures, but would have liked to be able to approach it closer... Be sure to read your guide book, if you choose to explore on your own, or you might miss it!

I don't know how a world-famous historical landmark doesn't have an audio guide. The live guide is ~50 euros for 1 hour. I discovered that Rick Steves has some audio guides available for free if you have a smartphone.

Anyone who can walk and read should enjoy a visit here. I came in pouring rain and was dressed well so didn't have any problem spending a few hours here with my umbrella. Great site to visit and learn about so many of Western civilization's leading figures!
