Acropolis of Athens 5.0 stars
Prehistoric, Classical Antiquity Site - #1 of 13
You can't go to Athens without visiting the Acropolis. I know it's the most well know tourist destination in Athens, but in my opinion, it's definitely worth a visit. I'm no architectural expert, but even I can appreciate what a momunental ... [more ]
Parthenon 4.0 stars
Prehistoric, Classical Antiquity Site - #2 of 13
The Parthenon is probably the best known and most popular of the Acropolis' monuments and, for this reason, it is always very busy in high season, but I think that it's really worth the wait. Apparently this would have been an extremely difficult ... [more ]
Roman Agora 4.0 stars
Square - #3 of 13
The Ancient Agora is located below the Acropolis at the edge of Monastiraki. (Entrance is on Adrianou, near Ayiou Philippou Sq., east of Monastiraki Sq. and on Ayiou Apostoli, the road leading down into Plaka from the Acropolis.) This is a nice ... [more ]
National Archaeological Museum of Athens 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #4 of 13
The first thing you will notice about the Archaeological Museum is the building in which it is housed- I belive it's neoclassical and it's certainly very splendid. I love the Greek mythology and the story of Ancient Greece so this was right ... [more ]
Temple of Hephaestus 5.0 stars
Prehistoric, Classical Antiquity Site - #5 of 13
Make sure you don’t miss the Temple of Hephaestus while visiting Agora. I found it to be the best preserved part of the site and it holds great importance for the ancient Greek, as it was dedicated to Athena and Hephaestus. The temple is lovely ... [more ]
Monastiraki 4.0 stars
Quarter - #6 of 13
Monastiraki is another important and very visited area of Athens. Like Plaka, this area is mostly used for shopping. The Monastiraki is actually famous for its huge flea market. We were really lucky to be there on a Sunday, so we practically ... [more ]
Theatre of Dionysus 4.0 stars
Opera, Theatre, Concert Hall - #7 of 13
A very important construction in the Acropolis is the theatre of Dionysos. The theatre was built together with the Acropolis about 2400 years ago and is really beautiful. The shape of the construction is kind of strange, but I couldn't’t say why. ... [more ]
Changing of the guards at the Athens government building 4.0 stars
Government Building - #8 of 13
During a sight-seeing tour by bus through Athens, we stopped at the government building. The orange colored building is surrounded by a small garden with some flowers. You should stay there to watch the change of guards. Depending on how warm it ... [more ]
National Archaeological Museum 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #9 of 13
The National Archaeological Museum of Athens is a very well organized museum, one of the best I have ever visited. The museum is rather small, but hosts items of extraordinary importance. There are many statues, but the one I most liked was the ... [more ]
Planetarium 4.0 stars
Planetarium - #10 of 13
In our guidebook, the Planetarium was listed under children's activities, but I don't know why because I love Planetariums! I think that this may still be the largest planetarium in the world with advanced digital technology. It's also three ... [more ]
Syntagma Square 4.0 stars
Square - #11 of 13
The Syntagma Square is probably the most important square in Athens. It hosts the Parliament building, which dates from the 19th century. The Parliament building is not very interesting, but the square as a whole is worth seeing. Besides the ... [more ]
Plaka 3.0 stars
Prehistoric, Classical Antiquity Site - #12 of 13
Visiting Athens is not only about visiting the ancient greek and roman ruins. Modern Athens also has a lot to offer. The oldest place of modern Athens is the Plaka neighborhood. I don’t know exactly when this area has started to be inhabited, but ... [more ]
Omonia Square 2.0 stars
Square - #13 of 13
Omonia square may have a nice view at daytime, but it is thought to be the most dangerous area in central Athens. And as tourists mostly try to stick to the centre, it’s the most dangerous area for tourists. My friends and I were lucky to have ... [more ]
