Temple Of Athena Nike - Review

Temple of Athena Nike is in many ways the amalgamation of two different phases of history. The building stands for victory and was built for Athena in her victorious manifestation. A beautiful ode to her in white marble, the temple has well-preserved columns that render it an astonishing grace. It is hard to imagine that the monument was built so long ago.

The temple isn’t the original one that stood here. The Persians had destroyed many of the temples during their invasion of Athens. This is the rebuilt version of the one that was destroyed. It has also recently undergone Anastylosis which means it was reconstructed slightly by using the fallen stones from the original. The gorgeous marble building is certainly one of the must-see attractions on Acropolis Rock.

The Temple of Athena Nike is a temple in the Acropolis of Athens and was named after the Greek goddess Athena Nike. The temple was built around 420BC and is one of the earliest temples in Athens. This temple was designed by the architect Kallikrates and is 11 metres tall featuring monolithic columns. In 1930s, the temple was dismantled to address structural issues and it was in 1998, that the reconstruction began. The Temple of Athena Nike is today one of the most visited attractions in Athens. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Athens itinerary 1 day.

  • The Temple of Athena Nike (Nike means Victory in Greek) is on the right when your approaching the entrance (Propylaea) to the Acropolis. It's a stunning sight to see and sets the tone for the wonders to come once your inside.... Enjoy :)

  • Beautiful temple with fabulous backdrop This temple is one of the few on the Acropolis without scaffolding. It's beautiful and has a super interesting backstory. Would recommend you visit the museum before you visit the Acropolis. Seeing the real artefacts and learning about the history and amazing restoration process definitely adds to the enjoyment of the visit. Tips: 1. Get the multi-ticket pass for 30 Euros from somewhere else and you won't have to queue to get in / get a ticket. We got ours from the Ancient Agora - no queue. When we walked past the North Entrance the queue was at 90 minutes long!! 2. Queues are shorter in the early morning and late evening, but also much shorter at the South Entrance (by the Museum). 3. Whichever entrance you go in, exit at the other one (i.e. if you enter from the North Entrance, leave by the South) so you see everything. 4. There's no shade up there so if you're sensitive to sun then take precautions and avoid 12pm-4pm. I'm a red head and went up at 6pm but still needed lots of cream and a big sun hat. Worth it though!

  • Really nice, lots of things to see. The price is fair. Try to get early because in some moments it can be very crowded.

  • Well preserved columns that are carved in the shape of women. The structure definitely warrants a visit.

  • Absolutely fascinating historical facts and views from the Acropolis ~ what a treat! I want to revisit and learn so much more!!
