About Parthenon, Athens

The Parthenon is undoubtedly one of the most iconic structures in the Acropolis. It was built as a temple. The columns of the building surround the inner sanctum. This lovely piece of architecture was a tribute to the goddess Athena, after whom the city of Athens has been named.

Embellished by several beautiful designs and sculptures, the Parthenon is a shining example of ancient Greek architecture.

Parthenon, Athens Reviews

  • Such a great and historical place ever seen in Athens. I can say it is the piece of gold of Athens. We spend quality time with my lovely team mates and lovely friends.. I have enjoyed lots of fun.. Every person should travel and see this unique place.. I think you all enjoyed this place...

  • Stunning historical piece of gold of Athens! We spent the whole day up here just absorbing the magnificent structure! Its weird how up here it is relaxing and quiet, and down below in the city its mad and manic! Apart from the pocket of crowds made by tourists, this place was perfect! The views you get are awesome, especially during sunset! Take sunscreen, a good pair of walking shoes and some water for the journey to the top!

  • I have dreamed of coming here since I was a child. My fear was that it would fall down before I even got the chance. Much to my satisfaction it is still standing. And better yet, they are discovering where pieces go and putting some stuff together that wasn't just a decade ago. I find that astonishing. It's a little bit of a hike to get up the hill to see it, but totally worth it. Wear comfortable shoes as it is not high heels friendly. The ground is very uneven. For those of limited mobility, there is no elevator or tram to reach the site that I saw and even if there was the uneven terrain would make traversing the site extremely difficult. But if your determined it's worth the effort I believe.

  • We arrived in the afternoon when the line to get a ticket was extremely long. It would've taken us an hour just to buy a ticket had we waited in line. Instead we took part in a guided tour that was being offered by a local Greek tour guide. I don't recall her name but she was amazing. The tour was about an hour and she provided great insight into the sights. At the end, we had time on our own but left soon after.

  • Amazing place on top of a hill. Am easy walk up. Car/bus park at the bottom No wheelchair access Lots of ruins, including The Parthenon. Either have a guide or read up about it first to get the full benefit
