An Ancient Citadel That Birthed Democracy

The word “acropolis” translates to mean “high city” — and you can see why.

Towering above Athens on a rocky hill lies 4 temples: the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Propylaia, and the Temple of Athena Nike. The most iconic and recognisable of them is the Parthenon. Together they make up an ancient city bursting with history.

There’s also a museum on site which is well worth the visit. It will leave you knowing everything you could want to know about this one-of-a-kind place.
