My favorite part of the Acropolis, and very photogenic. There are great views of it as you walk up the south slope and that's the best area to see it from if you're coming in the afternoon. In the morning the light won't be good.

Located inside Acropolis, there is a well preserved structure as you ascend the steps towards the Parthenon. You can't get close to it like the other structures here so take pictures from the steps.

This small but beautiful site within the Acropolis could be overlooked with the size and grandeur of the other buildings within the Acropolis. It has its own majestic sense about it. An enjoyable spot for a moment of reflection.
