Parthenon, Athens

When you visit Athens, you must see the world’s most inspirational building: the iconic Parthenon. This temple dedicated to Athena has inspired the architecture of public buildings, banks and edifices around the world. Found at the top of the Acropolis, the Parthenon rewards those with comfortable footwear, a sturdy stride and a determination to see this glorious edifice. No matter how many times you’ve seen this temple in photographs, you’ll not be prepared for the sheer grandeur of it in person.

Considered to be one of the most important surviving buildings of classical Greece and the most exquisite of Doric temples, the Parthenon has perplexed architects, historians, archaeologists and reconstruction engineers alike. Currently buttressed with scaffolding, it will take your breath away, whether you visit it in the morning, in the heat of the day or at night with the sun setting behind it.

To see important artefacts and friezes from this temple, go down to the Acropolis Museum. For a complete history of the area, visit the National Archaeology Museum. For an intact Doric temple, visit the nearby Temple of Haphaestus.
