Crowning a dramatic limestone crag, the Acropolis stands high above modern Athens as a symbol of the city's former glory, recalling the culture that flourished more than two millennia ago. The main attraction at the Acropolis is the Parthenon, but there are several key sites. After entering through the main gate, you will pass the theater Odeon of Herodes Atticus, then walk through the Propylaia, which is the dramatic main entrance to the Acropolis.

When you exit the Propylaia at the top, you can immediately see the Parthenon to the right and the Erechtheion complex on the left, with the easily recognizable statues of the Porch of the Caryatids. Head over to the north side of the hill to reach the pedestrian street of Apostolou Pavlou for a fantastic view of the Acropolis from below or head to the Acropolis Museum in Makriyanni area to complete your experience of the Sacred Hill of Athens.
