Foundations for a temple dedicated to Athena were laid in 490BC, however, work did not begin in earnest until the Golden Age of Pericles (461-429BC).
Most peoples first thought of Athens, they are right too, it's unmissable. More pics in t'logue.......
Not all temples and buildings have withstand all the years from the past, and are now just ruins and rubble, or? They're still impressing.
Visit the Museum of Akropolis. It might be one of the most important museums of the world, and it houses many many items of the ancient Greek civilization.
You cannot leave Athens without seeing Akropolis. Here you can see a small view of it on the top of the hill.
The Akropolis hill, the "Sacred Rock", is the most important site of Athens.
To enter the Akropolis area you have to pass the Propylaia. This part of Akropolis was build 437-432 BC.
In front of the entrance of the Acropolis, near the ticket office, there is a little hill of rocks, where you can climb (there are stairs) to see the sunset over the Acropolis and the agora.
The view from FILOPAPPOS HILL at sunset is magnificient, the hill is quiet and lonely, you can seat at the marble benches and imagine yourself surrounded by Pericles, Plato, Sofocles...
Visiting the Acropolis and Parthenon.
It's amazing, it's the ruins of an ancient temple.
It has got great history which can hit you to the core. The view from there is gorgeous.
...go and see the Akropolis, but don't come late, they close at 6.30 in the evening... so forget sunset-pics!
