About: Museum Of Illusions Athens
Suggested by Tiqets
The Acropolis is located on a rocky outcrop overlooking Athens. This ancient citadel contains the remains of several historically significant ancient buildings, the most famous being the Parthenon, a former temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Visitors can take a number of tours which give insights into Greek history, or walk the site alone.
The National Archaeology Museum is the largest museum in Greece, and one of the most important archaeological museums in the world. With the initial purpose of collecting findings from 19th-century excavations in Attica and elsewhere, it gradually became the central National Archaeology Museum, and was enriched with finds from many different regions. Its world-renowned collections, boasting more than 11,000 items, offer you a panorama of ancient Greek culture, from the beginning of prehistory to late antiquity.
The Ancient Agora of Athens as it stands today is one of the most important monuments in Athens. Walk the remains of what was once a place for the citizens of ancient Athens to meet, gossip, and get the news on the issues of the day. Everyone from philosophers to priests, and politicians to prostitutes crossed paths here!
The Temple of Olympian Zeus is a temple ruin in the center of Athens, Greece, dedicated to the thunderbolt-wielding king of the Olympic pantheon, Zeus. It once contained a gigantic statue of Zeus that was among the largest cult statues of the ancient world. The temple was pillaged after the fall of the Roman Empire, and the statue of Zeus was likely broken down for precious materials, although its precise fate was lost in the annals of time. Only a few of the huge columns remain of this once-mighty temple, but it is a precious remnant of cultural heritage and a breathtaking piece of history to behold. We can only hope whoever did the ransacking was struck by a mysterious bolt of lightning...
The Acropolis Museum is a museum in Athens, where archaeological findings from the site of the Acropolis citadel are housed. Opened to the public in 2009, the museum is home to over 4000 artifacts found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes of the Acropolis, and contains relics from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece.
Over 50,000 people filled the marble stands of the Panathenaic Stadium for the first modern Olympics in 1896, but it has a history dating back to the 4th century B.C. Located in Athens, this marble wonder is now open for public viewing.
