I can't compare one attraction to the next. Athens will over whelm you with history. You become lost in the past, while you are surrounded by the present. I found the city alive with the beauty of what was, Athens is a city that will...More

A beautiful example of classical architecture would have been more interesting with more information

A relatively well preserved temple in the Ionic-style Acropolis. Here, the most interesting are Tsararyatids - columns shaped like a female statue. Keep in mind that the real ones are in the Acropolis Museum, and those in the temple are just spears.

Right next to the Parthenon, you can't miss it. Another spectacular ruin to add to Athens' armour. Walk stupid the perimeter to have a good look.

This is very iconic with the Caryatids and in great shape for being thousands of years old. The statues of the ladies are also support columns for the porch. The statues are reproductions though, the real ones are in the new Acropolis Museum minus one...More

The most amazing part are the statues who also act like columns. Great architecture and it's impressive that they really take care of the ruins and they try to recondition them. A short description is available, but a tour guide would me much better.
