Travel back in time with an entrance ticket to the archaeological site of the Athens Acropolis and its slopes. Explore the Parthenon, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena Nike and much more at your own pace. Learn more about Ancient Greece and its history.
What to Expect
Exchange your voucher for an entrance ticket to the Acropolis at the designated redemption point, and then enter the archaeological site through the south slope entrance. This is easily accessible from Dionysiou Areopagitou and Thrasyllou streets (metro station "Acropolis"). 

Once inside the ancient citadel, see the ruins of monuments such as the Parthenon, dedicated to the city's patron, Athena Parthenos. Admire the innovative architetcure of the double peripteral Doric temple, which remained unchanged until the fifth century AD when it was converted into a church.

Go to the ruins of the temple of the Erechtheion, where a mythical king of Athens was worshipped. Burned in the first century BC, and subsequently repaired with minor alterations, it was heavily damaged during the Greek War of Independence. Restoration was undertaken immediately after, and the Erechtheion became the first monument of the Acropolis to be restored.

See the remains of the monumental Propylaia (gate), erected in 437-432 BC after the completion of the Parthenon. The original building plan was particularly daring both in architectural and artistic terms, but was never completed. Visit the Temple of Athena Nike and see motifs such as the 4 monolithic columns on each short side of the Ionic temple. Look at the frieze depicting battle scenes between the Greeks and Persians on 3 sides of the temple and at an assembly of the Olympian gods watching the battles on the temple's eastern side.

Explore some of the other sites of the sacred Acropolis rock, such as the Brauronion, Temple of Rome and Augusuts, Pedestal of Agrippa, Beule Gate, the fortification wall, Chalkotheke and the Old Temple of Athena. Get stunning views of modern Athens from the top of the Acropolis, and learn more about classical Greece along the way.
