Acropolis

While Nic and Liz were still here we visited the Acropolis Museum and the ruins of the Parthenon that are there. The Parthenon is a former temple that sits up on the hill that is the Acropolis, and is dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron.The museum was very interesting and it has many, many artefacts from ancient Greece. It is built above the old city and has glass floors so that you can see what is left below. There are many tools and statues, some there are only parts left but there were many that were still intact. You could probably go 4-5 times and still not look at everything.
