Top Ten Greek Destinations: #1 - Athens - The Acropolis

Say what you like (or don't like!) about Athens, no one's trip to Greece can be complete without a visit to its supreme symbol, the outcropping of rock called the Acropolis, crowned with Athena's sacred temple, the Parthenon.

It looks great all day, but visit in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds. Skip the Sound and Light show - cold in temperature and corny in tone. New pedestrian pathways make it easy to visit via the Athens Metro. It's definitely one of the must-sees of Greece.
