The Parthenon, dedicated to the goddess Athena, is part of the Acropolis complex, but it deserves a specific mention. This ancient Greek building, known for its glorious white marble columns and perfect proportions, was built in 447 BCE on the Acropolis hill.
These ruins are a must-visit during the day and offer spectacular views from across the city at night.
It can get crowded up there, so I recommend going early when the Acropolis opens or during the last few hours before they close.
