02The Acropolis

The Acropolis sits on a hill that overlooks the city of Athens below. Its buildings are considered the finest examples of Greek architecture. Imagine entering through the massive gate, Propylaia, that leads into the Acropolis. You will be blown away at the beauty of the temples of Parthenon, Athena Nike, and Erechtheum, to name a few. The sanctuaries of Zeus, Artemis and others are also incredible architectural examples. Likewise, the engineering of the theatre of Dionysus and Odeon of Herodes is astounding. You can also visit the Acropolis Museum, a modern architectural feature that has many valuable artifacts on display. So many of the amazing things to do in Greece are right here at the Acropolis.
