78. Trace history at the Acropolis in Athens

Ranked #78 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.

Athen’s skyline is dominated by this ancient citadel perched on a rocky outcrop.

The site consists of a number of significant buildings, the most celebrated being the Parthenon, the temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena.

Construction of the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the temple of Athena Nike began in the fifth century BC


Extraordinary even without the Elgin Marbles that the Brits took.
