Athens visitors simply can't get around the Acropolis - it is ever-present

Visitors to Athens simply cannot avoid the Acropolis - it is ever present. It towers over the Greek capital and is stunningly beautiful.

Nearby are the Acropolis Museum, the Agora, the Plaka and Monastiraki Square. The ancient Athens and the modern city are united here.

The contemporary architecture of the Acropolis Museum is in a wonderful dialogue with the Parthenon, and the ancient Agora lives on in the hustle and bustle of the Plaka.
