Acropolis entrance ticket

The word “Acro-polis” means city by the edge. Towering over the capital, it is a very impressive sight, and walking around on its grounds, gives the visitor a feeling of awe and a true sense of the greatness of the ancient Greeks. The Parthenon, dedicated by the Athenians to Athena Parthenos, the patron of their city, is the most magnificent creation of the Athenian democracy at the height of its power. It is also the finest monument on the Acropolis in terms of both conception and execution. Built between 447 and 438 BC, as part of the great Periklean building project, begun after the victory at the battle of Marathon. The Parthenon was designed by the architects Iktinos and Kallikrates, while the sculptor Pheidias supervised the entire building program and conceived the temple’s sculptural decoration and chryselephantine statue of Athena. You will have the opportunity to admire also other important monuments such as Propylae, Temple of Athena Nike, Parthenon, Erechtheion with its Porch of Maidens.
