Un monumento famoso, estremamente bellissimo, che sorge d' armonia e perfezione. Informazioni in italiano L' Eretteo (Erechtheion) è un tempio ionico greco del V secolo a.C. che si trova sull' Acropoli di Atene. Nonostante la grande importanza del culto tributato ad Atena nel grande tempio (prima l'Ekatónpedon , poi il Partenone)...More

If you are to visit this and other temples in Acropolis, be sure to get ready for long waiting queue to purchase tickets. Unfortunately there is only one salesperson in the cabin and he/she might be tired and rude. Have shoes with good grip as...More

Great restoration work has kept these beauties standing and for full view at the Acropolis site. I loved seeing them in the museum and then holding up the building. This was a foreshadowing for me to be here. As I chose this postcard in my...More

I think this is one of the more interesting spots in the Acropolis. The statuesque columns are hauntingly beautiful and unique. It's unfortunate that you can't get closer to them though, the area is cordoned off. Don't miss this when you are on the Acropolis.

Breathtaking, so worth the climb up the Acropolis, to see these beauties "in person" We followed our iPhone GPS on foot, and enjoyed the pedestrian walkways and staircases and discovering the Parthenon.

One of my favorite places in the Acropolis area. Definitely head around back to see THE OLIVE TREE, supposedly given to the Greeks by Athena. The original 6 figures are in display at the museum, but there is something breathtaking about seeing the Erechtheion in...More

The highlight of the temple is the porch of the Caryatids which has six figures. Those on display are copies and the originals are in the Acropolis Museum.

As usual a nice feat of construction for the ancient gods. This is again located on top of acropolis.

This is the One of the things I visited Athens for. These 6 women figures look so dramatic on the top of the Acropolis hill, ancient and proud. Even the Parthenon I don't find as attractive as the Erechtheion, even tho' the original statues are...More
