The Parthenon, situated on the Acropolis rock, has evolved into a globally recognized symbol of Athens. Flourished during the 5th century, arguably the intellectually most productive period of the Greek culture, it is a magnificent symbol of the classical era’s spiritual and cultural production. I will give you an insight into its past use and significance. Moving then on to the South Slope of the hill will allow us to gain a better understanding of life in Athens before and after this brilliant boom, vividly illustrated by the archaic and roman remains.
