A powerful city, a powerful empire, an important place in the history of civilization. These are the key words and phrases that define the beautiful city of Athens. History records it, that the ancient city has been occupied by humans for at least 5000 years. A place known for its cultural achievements as far back as the 5th century, it is the place regarded as the home and base of western civilization. The southern Europe city became the foremost city of ancient Greece in the first millennium BC. The city was named after its patron goddess, Athena, whose symbol was the olive tree that symbolizes peace and prosperity. The city was the birthplace of Socrates, Sophocles and Pericles.
Perhaps, the greatest sight of the now modern city is the Acropolis. The archaeological museum is a cue of the glory of the ancient city, it’s the largest temple of the Greek antiquity period that spanned from 447 BC to 338 BC. Declared a UNESCO world heritage site, the Parthenon temple stands on a flattish-topped rock, about 490 feet above sea level and spans about 3 hectares. The great ancient ruin speaks about the birth of the goddess Athena, it also shows the Erechtheion, ancient sanctuaries built between 421 BC and 395 BC. The Acropolis also contains some of the great collections of ancient Greek art in the world. A free tour of Athens will show you more about this great temple.
