But that's not all the Acropolis site has to offer. There are two ancient theaters that are still intact, and many other small, intriguing ruins, particularly along the less-visited slopes.
And you don't want to miss the New Acropolis Museum, filled with some of the treasures that didn't get away. Many of them are still in the full colors provided by their original ancient pigments; unfortunately, the British Museum staff thought the statues Lord Elgin sent over would be improved by the liberal application of bleach. That's just one of the reasons that makes the quest for the return of the marbles such an important issue for Greece.
