Acropolis

Highly recommended
An enormous stone vessel dominating the plain, the Acropolis, whose name means "upper city", occupies an exceptional site. Its flat summit, nearly 300m by 156m, forms a vast esplanade covering 3ha, looming 115m over the lower city. The first inhabitants built a fortress there (including the famous Parthenon and Erechtheion) which became the most powerful city of Ancient Greece: Athens.

Our reports

Athens, much more than just an urban museum

Athens is much more than its Acropolis and traffic jams. The Greek capital is not a ‘museum city’ stuck in time; its soul is revealed in the mosaic of its quarters.
