The Acropolis, also called the “Sacred Rock”, is the most important ancient heritage of the country. It is also the trademark and most famous site of Athens and of Greece. It has been Athens’ main attraction since the 5th century BC, and is dedicated to Athena, the goddess of wisdom and protector of the city. The Parthenon, the most famous ancient Greek temple ever, stands proudly over the modern megalopolis of Athens, a reminder of the great civilisation he has witnessed. The Acropolis   can be seen from almost every part of Athens. It was and still is, without any doubt, the ultimate achievement of the city classical and architectural glory.  Apart from the Parthenon temple, there are also many other sites to see on the Acropolis, such as the Erectheion and the Rock of Ares.
Monastiraki neighbourhood
This is a popular neighbourhood in the centre of Athens. It is famous for its open-air cafeterias and the antique stores with bargain prices.
Plaka neighbourhood
This is a unique neighbourhood which has managed to keep its traditional character, although it is found in the centre of Athens.
The Muses Hill located to the south-west of the famous Acropolis is popularly referred to as the Philopappou Hill. From this place one can bask in the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis and the majestic Parthenon.
The Plateia Syntagmatos (Constitution square) was named like that when the Constitution was proclaimed, in 1975.
It is located in the centre of modern Athens. One of the highlights of the square is the Parliament (Vouli), which used to be the King Otto’s palace, and is a quite magnificent neoclassical building. In front of it you can see the National Guards, called the Euzones, wearing the traditional Greek uniform. 
The Parliament stands just in front of the big National Garden; whose freshness and calm you will appreciates after hours in the noise and heat of the city’s centre. This square is one of the biggest of Athens. It is surrounded by a lot of travel agencies, banks, the main post office, the Greek National Tourist Office (EOT) and money exchange booths. It is the most popular meeting point of both Athenians and tourists. More importantly, it is the place where you can find the most buses and taxis.

The National Archaeological Museum of Athens is the largest and most important museum in Greece, and its exhibits are between the finest collections of prehistoric items, sculptures, pottery and minor art, bronzes and Egyptian art, everything followed by detailed explanations in English. Some of the temporary exhibitions organised by the museum must not be missed.
