"Parthenon" Acropolis - Parthenon Tip by Aitana

Acropolis - Parthenon, Athens: 80 reviews and 147 photos


If you go to Athens, you must go up to the Acropolis and admire the Parthenon. Although it is under restoration and a great part of the marbles are abroad, you can make an idea of the temple as it was in the past. The magnitude of the temple, the columns, the size of the plinths...
The Parthenon must be one of the most visited and photographed spots in Europe. There are always lots of people around and it is impossible to take a picture where nobody else appears.

Address: Dionysiou Areopagitou | Main entrance on the west
