Temple of Athena Nike, Athens

4.6
#11 of 47 in Historic Sites in Athens
Ruin Monument
When touring the Acropolis, be sure to pay special attention to Temple of Athena Nike, the first Ionic temple in Athens' collection of architecture dedicated to their Pantheon. The walls and columns of the temple still stand in all their glory. Athenians once worshipped Nike, the goddess of victory, inside the colonnaded structure. Many of the statues and friezes that once graced the outside of the building can be found in the Acropolis Museum (moved to protect them from the elements). Access to this attraction is included in your ticket for the Acropolis. For Temple of Athena Nike and beyond, use our Athens trip itinerary planner to get the most from your Athens vacation.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.

  • beautiful. best seen when approaching acropolis. look out for it. cannot enter it.
  • superb! has its own feeling of past. nice view of Athen city specially prison of Socrates.
  • Very nice building, but too bad you cannot enter. Best views are before you enter the Acropolis.

  • Looks fantastic from the approach to the Acropolis. More difficult to see once you are at the summit due to ongoing restorations and the danger of falling.
