Create an itinerary including Temple of Athena Nike
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.

  • What a treat it was to spend time up here... loved wandering from one wonderful structure to the next. This one was a beauty.

  • It is located in the acropolis. And it is included in the price of the ticket. It is such a beautiful landmark with the female statues as pillars

  • A must see in Athens. I recommend buying tickets in advance as you can get a fantastic deal for €30 to see all the most important monuments. We visited during the last week of April so there was no cues or waiting time to enter however, I can imagine this being a case if you're visiting over the summer holidays as we still encountered a lot of tourists. 100% recommend to seeing this place with your own eyes - it is impressive and humbling to see places built by such an iconic, ancient civilization.
  • Extraordinary place. Better to visit after 16h and take a bottle of water with you. There is a drinking water available at a small fountain, but it's warm
