Things to do in Athens

  • The ParthenonThe Temple of Olypian Zeus
    The Parthenon was constructed between 447-432 BCE. It was built to shelter the gold and ivory statue of Athena. The building has eight columns in the front and back and seventeen on the sides, using approximately 13400 stones with the back room sheltering the statue of Athena. In Greece the temples are made to be viewed from the outside. An interesting feature about the temple is that there are no straight lines and the columns taper at the top making it look like they are experiencing tension from the roof.

  • The Temple of Olympian Zeus
    In the 6th Century the temple had begun to be built during the time when Pisistratus's son, Hippias reined. Then in 510 BC he was over thrown and the temple did not finish until the Emperor Hadrian reined in 131 AD. The Temple of Olympian Zeus is known to be the largest temple in Greece. Inside the temple there was a large statue of the god Zeus as well as the Emperor Hadrian.  After the temple was built the Athenians honored Hadrian by building an arched gateway in the northwest corner of the sanctuary in 131 CE. The temple Originally was built with 104 Corinthian columns of which only 15 remain standing today.

  • The AcropolisThe Acropolis
    Acropolis is a word meaning the "city by the edge" and the Acropolis in Athens is one of the largest cities and most known of them all. The Acropolis was posted up at the tallest hill that overviewed the capitol city so it was easier to look for the enemy. It was believed that the city was occupied by the Mycenaean civilization going back to at least the 7th millennium BC. Many tombs and temples were built in the Acropolis for kings, heroes and gods that were related to Athens. By the 6th Century BC, the Acropolis had become a place for sacrifice to the gods and the Panathenean games were very popular. Then in the 5th Century during the Persian Wars, the Acropolis was set to flames and all focus was on battle. Through the centuries the Acropolis was used for a variety of things by many religions and other invading countries and because of the battles and invasions the Acropolis was slowly being destroyed to what we see today as well as other damages from natural disasters.
  • The Theater of Dionysus
    The Theater of Dionysus was built out of stone into a natural slope of the Acropolis and was the birthplace of the very first form of Greek tragedy theater. The Theater was originally built for the god Dionysus for the Greeks to honor the god in dance and song. The theater has a full circular orchestra where the chorus would stand to sing, dance and narrate the story, a skene which was the stage for the performers, eisodos where the audience would come in to find their seats as well as the perfumers entrance and exit. Many of the Greek play writers works were performed on this stage including Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes

The area was used as a residential and burial area as early as the Late Neolithic period in 3000 BCE. In the 6th century BCE the Agora became a public area after being a city of no interruption though out its history. After some serious damage made by the Persians in 480-79 BCE, the Romans in 89 BCE and by the Heruli in 267 CE the city did some serious building. Then after the Slavic invasion in 580 CE, it was gradually abandoned.
