Temple of Athena Nike, Athens

4.7
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. Use our Athens holiday planner to add Temple of Athena Nike and other attractions to your Athens vacation plans.

  • Although it is the smallest of the structures you'll see once atop the Acropolis it is very important to Athenian heritage. Its remarkable restoration allows you to view the structure in its original ...  more »
  • Like all the Acropolis, a must. It is on one side up the stairs, something small but beautiful and with unique columns.

  • We got here really early in the morning, we were the first in the queue! It is better this way to avoid the crowds, as we were leaving the bus tours were just starting to arrive.
  • I loved that Temple. I highly recommend you go see it.
