Acropolis – the home of the gods: one of the most famous sights in all of Greece and a must for anyone visiting Athens.
The Acropolis in Athens: Built in the 5th century BC, the world-famous Acropolis in Athens still attracts and fascinates travelers from all over the world. It is since 1986 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Of the many fortresses in Greece, Acropolis is the most outstanding and impressive. At 156 m above sea level, it rises on the sacred rock above the rooftops of the Greek capital.
Originally dedicated to the city goddess Athena, the Acropolis was for centuries the sanctuary of ancient Athens and became a collection of outstanding monuments of Greek history. Between 467 and 406 BC, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Parthenon Temple and the Erechtheion were built on the rocky hill. In Mycenaean times, it served as the seat of kings and in the democratic state of Athens, it became the home of the gods and thus the source of many myths and legends.
A visit to the Acropolis is a worthwhile highlight for any visitor! The arduous ascent is rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Greek capital and its attractions.
Our tip for you: once you climb the mountain of the Acropolis, you should pay a visit to the Herodes Atticus Theater. Here you will take beautiful photos, with the Roman Theater in the foreground and houses of Athens in the background. Additionally, you can attend the open-air concerts regularly held here in summer. Turn your visit into an unforgettable event!
