The 2500-year-old city of Athens, which is devoted to Athena, the Greek Goddess of War, is preserved by the Acropolis, which is perched atop a precipitous hill. You become nostalgic for the early Greek civilization as you explore the old ruins.

Why Should You Visit The Acropolis?

The advancements made by the ancient Greeks in astronomy, philosophy, mathematics, and medicine are greatly owed to them. At that time, in the fifth century BC, Acropolis served as the epicenter of such greatness. The Acropolis citadel's ruins can be found 490 feet below the land of Athens. The Middle Neolithic period is represented by the 7.3-acre site.

The remains contain several famous buildings, including the Parthenon, Erechtheum, Old Temple of Athena, Theatre of Dionysus Eleuthereus, Temple of Athena Nike, and others. A trip to the Acropolis will take you back to a period in history when Greece was the world leader in all fields and there were many Doric temples.


The Greek word 'akropolis' for the acropolis, which roughly translates to the highest point, suggests that the Acropolis was once Athens' highest point. The building's origins can be traced to the Mycenaean megaron, the first example of an open portico and a huge hall with a throne in the middle. The significant monuments on the Acropolis were created in the 5th century BC with help from Pericles, the General of Athens, and have endured centuries of looting and assault.

The 2,460-year-old Acropolis is currently undergoing restoration to reverse the pollution, erosion, and damage brought on by military operations. Titanium dowels and the reconstructed original material made this possible. 2,675 tons of architectural components have been restored as of the 21st century.

When it comes to the Acropolis' cultural influence on the modern world, the Olympic Games still adhere to the legendary Great Panathenaea festival that the anpturecient Athenians celebrated once every four years.

Acropolis Museum:

You must visit the Acropolis Museum if you want to see the most priceless components of the Acropolis. In the center of an old location that is home to famous ruins, there is a cutting-edge museum. The museum has a floor area of 14,000 square meters and houses 4,250 works of Acropolis art. The Calf Bearer, the Statuette of Athena Promachos, the sculptures of Kiritos Boy and Loutrophoros, the headless bodies of Kekrops and Pandrosos, and the majestic head of Alexander the Great are some of the most intriguing works.
