Proceed with a visit to the archaeological site of Acropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage monument. The Acropolis, which means “upper city” in Greek, is a symbol not only of Athens but all of Greece. The impressive complex of ancient temples has stood on a sacred rock above the city for 2500 thousand years.
The entrance to the Acropolis leads through the famous Propylaea, to the right of which is a small temple of Nike. In the centre rises the majestic Parthenon – the temple of Athena. On the left side is the Erechtheion with the famous Caryatid porch. An experienced guide will tell you all the sights of the Acropolis in detail. You will have time for photos and to see Athens from above. Below the Acropolis is the ancient theatre of Herodes Atticus, which is still used today as an open-air concert hall.
