The Iconic Acropolis

Acropolis is a must see when visiting Athens and to many people the main attraction of the city.
It consists of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance and is located at the top of a hill, so you will also have an amazing view of the entire city.
Try going early in the morning, as it does get pretty crowded during the day.

The Panathenaic Stadium

The Panathenaic Stadium was home to the first ever modern Olympics held in 1896 and is still occasionally used for different sports today.
Make sure to walk all the way to the top, to get this pretty amazing view.

    The closest we’ve ever been is the Parthenon in Nashville. Very cool, but obviously not as cool as the real article. Great post!
