When many tourists decide to visit the Acropolis the usually go up the stairs to the Proplylaea, pass through the colonnade, and then just stare at the Parthenon. Truly, Parthenon is one of the most important monuments of the world, but after walking around it...More

Although these are replicas, it is still awesome. You can't miss it if you are visiting anywhere near the Acropolis. This was one of my favorite temples. They have done a great job at refurbishing this area.

Caryotids are reproductions. Originals in Acropolis museum and one in British Museum. However, the reproductions make the sight spectacular and one of the highlights on the Acropolis.

How can you not love these buildings. But you do have to put up with throngs of tourists, unless you have the luxury to travel during off off season. -altho this summer is projected for Greece to be less crowded with tourists.

It is the most important monument from the perspective of the legend of the origin of Athens. While it is better maintained than the Parthenon and has a Olive tree to signify its implications, the maintenance could still be better.

This building on the Acropolis was amazing. The carvings on the Porch of the Caryatids was so impressive. They are not the originals (they are now in the Acropolis Museum) but the replicas are pretty good too.
