Acropolis of Athens (Greece)

Write Review
The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and containing the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The word acropolis comes from the Greek words ἄκρον (akron, "edge, extremity") and πόλις (polis, "city"). Although there are many other acropoleis in Greece, the significance of the Acropolis of Athens is such that it is commonly known as "The Acropolis" without qualification. (Source: Wikipedia)

Must see if you're visiting Athens

To get to the Acropolis, you have to climb up a long, winding sidewalk with steps every-so-often. It was not a difficult climb and there are lots of places to stop and rest under shade trees if needed. The only down side to the Acropolis is almost all of the statues and sculptures have been removed and taken to museums. Don't leave Athens without visiting this. And if you have time find a bar or restaurant with a view of it and watch as the sun goes down - outstanding!
