Athens Walk around Acropolis

Athens is the center of Greek civilization, the capital of Greece, a contemporary city offered for history exploration, holidays, relaxation, nightlife and many more. There are a lot of things to write about Athens but I’ll do that in another post. This post is about recommending my Athens walk around Acropolis and reaching the top of Areopagus hill in order to enjoy the amazing Athens panoramic view.

If you haven't been to the museum before, and have some free time, I recommend you to spend 1-2 hours there. It's worth visiting since you'll get to see some findings of the Acropolis archaeological site. The day I visited Acropolis was closed for construction works. However I've visited Acropolis a few years ago and it's a lifetime experience which I recommend you to do. Moving on, I walked towards the ‘Archeologikos Choros Theatro Irodou Attikou’ via the Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian street. As you walk you will reach the The Odeon of Herodes Atticus theatre on your right. This is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens which is still used for performances. The theatre was closed so I couldn’t go in, but I managed to capture a few pictures outside and inside. I continued my walk uphill. The path is really good for walking. Once you reach the top [...]
