Come and discover the Acropolis of Athens, the cradle of a civilization where the sacred and the military are two sides of the same coin. It is a place steeped in history and myths. The Acropolis has hosted many political events and military decisions that have disrupted the established order in Europe and West Asia. Even if its religious and sacred status eventually prevailed, it remains a fortress with an undeniable strategic position.
At the top of this 156-meter-high hill, you can travel back in time and discover the architectural treasures of this sanctuary. The temples and places of worship found there are mainly dedicated to the goddess Athena. Upon entering through the Prolypées, the temple of Athena Niké, and then passing through the Parthenon to the theatre of Dionysus, you will have access to one of the greatest wonders of Ancient Greece.
