If your in Athens you must visit the Parthenon. Amazing place, but you will need comfortable shoes. If you will be here for a few days buy the museum pass that includes all the main attractions for 30 euros.

It is dedicated to the goddess which sprang out of the head of Zeus and represents its spiritual power. The monument is called Parthenon which is the Hellenic word for Virgin.... More

Its a long and winding path to the top of the Acropolis where the Partheon sits surrounded by fields of broken stone and several cranes that are part of the ongoing "renovation". We were here on an offseason Saturday but still crowds of students and others all over the place. Must be absolute hell in the high season. Never-the-less this... More

I recommend this site for everyone who's interested in history and wants to know the birthplace of democracy. Great view from there to the city skyline.

It is still under renovation, I suppose it is ongoing but still worth the visit, the views of Athens from the top are spectacular and well worth the small climb.Very uneven and bumpy under foot and it's worth booking in advance, the queues were long even in mid November as there were only 2 ticket booths open.

Make sure you wear appropriate shoes because it is a bit slippery and if you are planning to visit the acropolis museum do so prior to visiting the parthenon as you will get a better understanding of what you are seeing

In October, 2016, this is under renovation. Parthenon, dedicated to the goddess Athena, is amazing in size and grandeur. Even more spectacular is the Erechtheion/Erechteum, 6 ladies, an ancient temple dedicated to both Athena and Poseidon.
