The Acropolis and its environment

The Parthenon, the temple of Athens, is the main attraction. On the Acropolis, you can also find the Erechteion, which has columns in the shape of female caryatids. These were replaced by copies to prevent damage by air pollution. On the southern slope of the Acropolis you will find the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a Roman theatre that seats approximately 5.000 people. This is used for the annual Athens festival, which hosts world-class ballet and musical events. The Dionysus theatre is situated next to the Herodes Atticus. Nearly all of the classical Greek tragedies were written for this theatre.
Metro: Acropolis

Agora

This used to function as both the central market place and the political centre of the polis. The Agora is dominated by the Stoa of Attalus and the Theseion, also known as the Hephaisteion, which is devoted to the god of metalworking and the mythological hero Theseus.
