The Acropolis at night, Athens, Greece at My Favourite Planet

The Acropolis at night
We are currently working to add new galleries, with more photos
and detailed information about the sights and sites of Athens.

We begin, as you would expect, with the Acropolis.

The Acropolis gallery has - so far - 36 pages of photos and information
about one of the world's most famous rocks and its inspirational monuments.
