Don’t miss out on the wealth of attractions and adventures in Athens
THE PARTHENON AND THE NEW ACROPOLIS MUSEUM
Dominating the Athenian skyline, The Acropolis is the pride of Athens.
Perched at its summit is the magnificent Parthenon, the enduring symbol of Ancient Greece, democracy and one of the world’s most recognizable cultural monuments. Work began on this iconic building in 447BC, taking 15 years to complete; it has withstood invasions, earthquakes and mortar attacks, serving today as a reminder of what humans can achieve. Before embarking on the climb up The Acropolis, “The Sacred Hill,” it is essential to visit the New Acropolis Museum. This beautifully constructed modern museum was opened in 2007 and, since that moment, has continued to awe visitors with its spectacular displays. The museum houses artifacts from The Parthenon and Ancient Greece. This venue is the perfect aperitif to the magnificent Parthenon main course.
