Emerging onto the plateau you will reach the pinnacle of Greek antiquity, the Parthenon to learn about this marvel of both engineering and art along with its amazing mythology and the role it played in Ancient Greek life.

Opposite the impressive columns you will be guided to the Erechtheion, Athens most holy temple and home to the contest between Poseidon & the goddess Athena for the patronage of the city and from which the sacred olive tree still grows! After time to contemplate this amazing site and its turbulent history and take photos enjoying the panoramic Athens view you will descend through the olive trees towards the New Acropolis museum to see & learn about the art & masterpieces which adorned the temples.
