This temple is incredibly well preserved and restored. Having such an extensive history it is amazing to be able to see this temple standing. Even though you cannot get close to it, it is still worth looking at from the Propylaea. The sculpture is kept close within the Acropolis museum but it is cool to see all of the casts... More

While at the Acropolis there is more to see than just the Parthenon. While not nearly as great it is worth seeing. I enjoyed hearing the history and there are great photo opportunities.

A good month for visiting the ancient sites of Athens. Not so busy so you can stroll round and see the site properly and take pictures! The views are fantastic across the city and the weather is still warm.

Nice to see, not as large as the nearby Parthenon but still an interesting attraction in conjunction with the rest of the Acropolis.

Climbing through all the ruins of the various temples and then coming to the top of Acropolis Hill and seeing Athena's Temple and the porch with The Caryatids - words can't express. The view from the top overlooking Athens gives you an idea of just how amazing and varied the Greek culture is.
