Highlights

  • Acropolis Walking up the western slope of the temple-city, via marble stairs and ramps, just as worshippers did some 2500 years ago.
  • Parthenon Feeling like an ant, standing next to the columns of this iconic building that is now synonymous with Ancient Greece.
  • Acropolis Museum Feeling like a giant, as you look at the frieze from the top of the Parthenon, now installed on the top floor here. Look out the window to remind yourself of the scale.
  • Odeon of Herodes Atticus Taking in a concert in the balmy summer night at this classical theatre.
  • National Museum of Contemporary Art Seeing how classical Greek heritage inspires today's artists.
