Perch yourself on one of the stone seats to imagine the sights and sounds experienced by ancient theatergoers who came to watch plays by Greek writers Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides.
Also, pass the Odeon of Herodes Atticus; the theater is still used today during the Athens Festival from May to October.
Find peace and quiet at an Asclepius — a healing temple that honored the god of medicine Asclepius, before continuing to one of the most recognized buildings on the planet: the Parthenon.
Meander around the perimeter of the temple to learn more about how it was constructed for the goddess Athena.

Ranked one of the top five museums in the world, the New Acropolis Museum boasts collections of statues and other relics of everyday life in several galleries.
In the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis, the glass floor occasionally reveals an archaeological excavation site.
