Step 1 – Acropolis
The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex of the Greek Antiquity. We will start from the Theatre of Dionysus and we will go up to the top of the Sacred Rock where the Parthenon is located.

The theatre of Dionysos was first built in the 6th century BC. Modified and expanded over the centuries, it is the oldest Greek theatre and the site where some of the most famous Ancient Greek plays were first performed.
Step 3 – The Odeon of Herodes
The Odeon of Herodus Atticus is today one of the best places to experience a live music performance. This ancient concert hall was built by the Athenian philosopher, teacher and politician Herodes Atticus. It was built in the memory of his wife.
Step 4 – Athena Nike
The temple of Athena Nike is the smallest temple in the Acropolis, placed at its southwest corner, at the edge of a high cliff.
