We have been here before but always wonder how the Parthenon was built on this hilltop without heavy construction equipment used today.

We start our Acropolis trip 8.30 am. It was amazing to learn the history and creation however we were disappointed with so much building work is spoils the view and 21st century building was build in the Acropolis. It was a real eye sore.
