Acropolis, Athens: 179 reviews and 334 photos

The Panathenaic Way is the main path that stretches through the middle of the Acropolis. When you enter through the gates of the Propylaia, you will enter onto this path.

The Procession of the Panathenaia passed along this path every 4 years on the birthday of Athena. It was a festival that included musical, dramatic, and athletic contests.
