Comments off

The pedestrian area which lies around the Acropolis has an extension of more than three miles. To acquire the input (General 12 Sundays and free students) will stroll around the ancient Agora and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, by which it would be advisable to begin the journey up to the top of the polis (the acropolis). The vision of the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike and Erechtheum (adorned by the Tribune of the caryatids) will be our reward in addition to the magnificent views that gives us the climb of the Saranico Gulf. On the hill we will come with the theater where playwrights Aeschylus, Sophocles and Aristophanes premiered most of his works, the theatre of Dionysus. The agora we referred to us before, and whose function was to public communication among its inhabitants, is the Valley between the Acropolis and the Hill of Filopapos. This last is the funerary monument of homonym name that we can not ignore. In the current political center of Athens are the Academy of Plato, reconstruction of Theofill Hansen in 1887 as a library, and the Museum Archaeological national (7 general admission, free student of the EU). Pieces like the funerary mask of Agamemnon or Zeus de Artemision have headquarters in place, although most of the treasures of the city were looted in the colonial phase and driven to other cities.

See as an example the headquarters of the friezes of the Parthenon, the British Museum in London.
