Another great spot on the Acropolis with wonderful creativity on display from the caryatids. Make sure to take it all in by checking out the back as well as the front. Beautiful views of Athens from here as well.

My favorite structure at Acropolis. Proud statues of Caryatids guards sacred place where Athena battled with Poseidon for patronage of the City. Nice photo opportunity.

The acropolis is fairy disappointing but this magnificent temple is what rescues it indeed. Beautiful from every angle, even if crawling with tourists and photographers. I spent more time here that the Parthenon.

The Erechtheion is a smaller cousin to the more famous Parthenon, but not diminished in importance or beauty. Visitors to the Acropolis can easily see both and will want to take pictures from an angle that hides the speakers or lights behind the statues of...More
