When you arrive to Athens, it’s not difficult to localize your target up on a hill. You can take a relaxing walk by the path to there cause you have the whole day to visit it until sunset. In fact, in that lively way you will find the Acropolis Museum with a more than affordable ticket price for the wide range of Greek history that awaits to be discovered inside! You can find from the smallest spoon that our Greek ancestors utilized to stir their teas up to the great sculpture of a demon with three humanoid heads and torsos. Actually, here attention is paid to the smallest detail so when you leave, you do with a smile.

After the museum, the Acropolis is some steps ahead. The only warning here in the summit of this mount is that this ancient Greek ground is a bit slippery, but you’ll forget that pair of funny slips when the Parthenon erects majestically in front of your avid eyes. This antique temple dedicated to worship the goddess Athena has stood not only to the test of the time but the cruel attack of no few civilizations. But here is still our old friend, the best gift that Greece could contribute to the world.
