Fab fab fab - love it so much every time I go. But beware the statues are replicas! Despite the crowds it has a real authenticity about it. Because it's the real thing and hasn't been converted into a theme park!

Consider this part of the acropolis tour. The very place where you will find a wild olive tree, the statues that are so famous are just cooies. The real ones are to be found in the acropolis museum. Breathtaking!

Next to the Parthenon these ruins are very small but no less impressive. It has a very interesting history and plays an important part in Greek mythology. The sculptures of the ladies are impressive and very neat to see.

Liked the statues but this place was already so crowded with tourists. Walk around and down as well. Just in front of the parthenon.

Yep. You must visit the Caryatids. I know you will if you are on the Acropolis. Don't miss it. The "Ladies" are magnificent. We never knew so many fabulous structures existed on the Acropolis but they do.

My family and I really enjoyed visiting all the sights in Athens and the Erechtheion is right at the top of our list! If you go, I highly recommend visiting the Acropolis Museum to see and learn more about these beautiful ladies!

One of my favorite things to see in Athens. Beautiful and you can see the five original Caryatids at the Acropolis Museum.

The Caryatids are true wonder of design. See the real ones in the Acropolis Museum (so you can get a little more up close). Notice how they all have different hair styles (of braids). Learn how that hair is designed to bolster/support their necks so...More
