The Erechthion is a must see in Athens - if not for its history at the very least it's physical beauty. Located close to the Plaka, we chose to visit as soon as the Acropolis complex opened at 8am and we were thankful for this for two reasons - 1. We missed the majority of the crowds and 2. The heat was minimal in the morning. By the time we left at 10am, the tour groups and other tourists made it difficult to get close to anything and the temperature had risen to over 30 degrees so I highly recommend going early! There are many helpful guides placed around the location so even if you are not on an organised tour there are people to ask for information. The building itself is wondrous, one of the more detailed in the complex. The views of Athens from the top are phenomenal and the historical information located near the temple is interesting. Highly recommended!
