It's the best-preserved Greek temple in the world, but it's not so crowded as Parthenon. One of the greatest temple I've ever seen.

It's amazing how well this is preserved and gives you an idea of how magnificent the Parthenon must have been in its heyday.

Situated inside the ancient agora, this temple is better preserved than the Parthenon and you are much closer to the attraction than the Parthenon. It is amazing to see how ingenious, smart and clever ancient people were in developing their environment.

This probably is the only structure on top of Acropolis which has survived in its entirety (relatively) and thus commands an awe from the visitors. While the lime light remains on the Parthenon, this one also steal some eyes.

A must see, even in winter, but wait for a sunny day. The Temple itself is on the top of a small hill, a little bit disappointing but quite impressive for views over the Acropolis. The whole area is quite interesting.

The Ancient Agora gives you an amazing sense of what life in Ancient Athens was like and how advanced it was. Walk around the digs and let your imagination loose.
