Temple of Athena Nike, Athens

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very symbolic Temple. It can be viewed only from the outside and from afar, get closer and look inside does not work. Do not miss it at the entrance to the Acropolis.

  • The sunset views are great. The crowds are a little heavy to easily take photos, but with some patients they are available.  more »

  • 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.
  • Absolutely amazing piece of architecture, great photo opportunities and a beautiful and interesting historical experience.
  • Pretty cool
  • Very good conservation/restoration treatments
