Athens: Acropolis Tour

In this tour you will visit the Acropolis of Athens. Acropolis is the trademark of Athens and is the number one attraction in the city. Entering the archaeological site, we see the complex of the Propylaea. In front of the right wing is the small temple of Athena Nike. The best site of all, however, is the majestic Parthenon, a temple made almost entirely of Pentelic marble, dedicated to Athena Virgo, inside which was its golden-ivory statue. Right across from the Parthenon, on the northern side of the Acropolis stands the Erechtheion, the temple with the famous Caryatians, where six marble daughters replace the columns.

Exiting the archaeological site on the right, there is a rock, the Areos Pagos, which was the most ancient court in Athens. This is where Apostle Paul spoke in 52 AD for Christianity. Climb the stairs and enjoy the city's view from above.
