Acropolis

Local nameΑκρόπολη
LocationAthens, Greece

This complex of historical monuments is the most important landmark of the city and a majestic symbol of ancient Greek culture. Dating back to around 400 BC, it has maintained its authenticity and survived through wars, earthquakes, and other natural disasters.

Climb up the rocky hill and admire this site crowned by marble temples, consecrated to the city's goddess Athena. Several archaeological remains can be found on the hill, so allow yourself enough time to see them all. The major sights include Parthenon, Old Temple of Athena or Erechtheion.

Bear in mind that it can get quite hot up there, so avoid making the trip during hot summer days and always bring enough water and sunscreen.
