For our travel section we thought to start with the basics. “Acropolis 101” course from our host Chris Tantalakis.
Acropolis is a world renowned monument that no one should miss.
The Acropolis hill overlooks Athens and hosts the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the temple of Athena Nike, each one of them very significant for its own purposes and style. Τhe Parthenon, dates back in the fifth century BC, in the golden age of Pericles, it was the greatest and finest sanctuary of the ancient world, dedicated to the patron of the city of Athens, goddess Athena. All the monuments up on this “sacred hill” are unique masterpieces of architecture and art combining many different styles of Classical art, having influenced culture for many centuries until today. GreekTV climbed up the hill and presents a basic guide of this great monument.
