Stop by the Areopagus before entering the Acropolis from the West side. It's free and takes less than thirty minutes but it's humbling to stand where the Apostle Paul preached and look over the Agora and up to the Acropolis. I recommend the stairs. They're...More

To many, this is just a piece of rock. But for those who realise this is where the Apostle Paul preached his magnificent sermon in Acts 17: "To an unknown god" - who is now made known - this place exudes an aura of power...More
