Athens Holidays - The Acropolis (Part I)




去年的聖誕假期我又去了一個期待已久的旅遊目的地 - 希臘雅典

我住的酒店就在雅典的明勝雅典衛城(Acropolis)附近, 所以就成為我第一個參觀的地方。

雅典衛城(Ακρόπολη)位於希臘首都雅典,是最著名的衛城(頂端城市)之一。

雅典衛城於2007年3月26日被正式宣布為歐洲首要的文化遺產名錄古蹟。

衛城是由平頂岩構成,位於海拔150米(512 英呎)。其亦被命名為西哥羅佩(Cecropia),

以紀念常被描繪為半人半蛇的怪物的雅典首任國王凱克洛普斯(Kekrops或Cecrops)。(資料來自維基百科)

雅典衛城上築有巴特農神殿(Parthenon), 請大家先欣賞部份照片, 往後我會慢慢介紹這個歷史衛城。




I went to a long-awaited destination - Athens, Greece in last year's Christmas holiday.

I live in the hotel nearby the Acropolis, so it was my first place to visit in Athens.

The Acropolis of Athens or Citadel of Athens is the best known acropolis in the world.

The Acropolis was formally proclaimed as the pre-eminent monument on the European

Cultural Heritage list of monuments on 26 March 2007.

The Acropolis is a flat-topped rock that rises 150 m (490 ft) above sea level in the city of Athens,

with a surface area of about 3 hectares. It was also known as Cecropia, after the legendary serpent-man,

Cecrops, the first Athenian king. (Information from Wekipedia)

On the top of Acropolis is the Parthenon, please enjoy the first part of the photos,

next I will slowly introduce the history of the Acropolis.

  23. Wow... It's memory flashback for me!
    The weather looks good! When I was there it was so hot...
    So many people!

    Did you also see their new museum which you have to pay separate ticket to get in (Not included in your Acropolis 5 tickets)? They're so clever to charge tourists extra money...

    I went to their new museum to see the marbles, but it's a shame that you cannot take pictures in there.

    Better come to British Museum to see the Elgin Marbles- it's free and you can take pictures.
    Even with flash!

  24. Haha, so lucky I've chosen the best time to visit Athens,
    the weahter was comfortable and was empty around!

    I didn't go to the Acroplis museum nearby the metro,
    the bigger reason was not allow take pictures there...
    British Museum sounds great! I will visit there next! ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ha ha... I went into the museum because I wanted to see the remaining sets of stones in Athens.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good on you, I didn't visit any museum this time,
    I saved my euro for food and shopping! ^.^
