Acropolis of Athens

A splendid religious complex, the Acropolis consists of several temples which were built by the world's first democracy during the 5th Century BCE. The most majestic building of all is the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. The Parthenon became the paragon of classical Greek architecture and, even though it has suffered serious damage over the centuries, it still remains an important monument, a symbol of all things classical. The Acropolis Museum is also a part of the Acropolis Complex. No trip to Athens is complete without a visit to Acropolis. Check the website for more information.

Parthenon

Dedicated to Goddess Athena, the Parthenon is arguably one of the most recognized monuments of Greece. Located within the site of Acropolis, the marvelous and magnificent structure has a history that dates back to 447 BCE. Over the centuries, the Parthenon has witnessed many changes, destruction and reconstructions, along with a thoroughly mesmerizing history. It still stands tall, over 13.72 meters (45 feet) in height, representing the glorious Grecian history and all things classical. As such it is home to several Hellenic artifacts, invaluable artworks and sculptures.

Pnyx, Arios Pagos and Philopappou Hills

Three hills located west of the Acropolis have played a major role in the history of Athens. Next to the entrance of the Acropolis stands Arios Pagos, the seat of the court of ancient Athens. This is where the apostle Paul preached to the Athenians. Further to the west is Pnyx, the birthplace of democracy. It served as the world's first assembly point during the 5th century BCE. It is now the site of a sound and light show running each night from April to October. Philopappou is the tallest of these three hills. On the hilltop stands the Philopappos Monument—a marble tower built in the 2nd century CE.

Acropolis Museum

A hit with the public as soon as it opened in 2009, the museum gives context to the Acropolis and displays its sculptures in a relaxed and visually stunning style. The building, designed by Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi, is worth a visit in its own right. Clear information panels, helpful films, strolling archaeologists to answer your questions, and plenty of space and light in which to walk among the statues, make this one of the great museums of Europe. There is also an excellent café-restaurant and shop on-site (don't miss the Parthenon fridge-magnets).

Theatre of Dionysus

South of the Acropolis stands the world's oldest theater. Theatre of Dionysus was constructed in the 6th Century BCE and rebuilt in the 4th Century BCE. All the works of the great ancient dramatists Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides and Aristophanes were first performed at this location during the 5th Century BCE. Walking uphill towards the Acropolis, you will come across the Eumenes Arcade (constructed in the 2nd Century BCE) and the Asklepios Temple. Further to the west is the Odeon of Herod Atticus, a Roman theater still used for concerts and performances.
