The Parthenon

In Must Do - Greece by The H4C Team

The architecture of Ancient Greece doesn’t get much more iconic than the Parthenon in Athens. Dedicated to the goddess Athena and made entirely from Pentelic marble, the Parthenon took 15 years to complete.

Wandering around the grounds, gazing at the metopes that depict Ancient Greek history is a definite must-do when you visit Greece. Be sure to pop into the many shops and markets of nearby Athens when you spend the day at this world-famous site.
