Ever since I started doing Ancient photography, I had this specific shot of Parthenon on my “To-Do” list. I had seen this photo over and over on many popular landscape websites. I knew it was the view of Parthenon – Acropolis from somewhere close to the Thission place.
The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The word acropolis comes from the Greek words ἄκρον (akron, “edge, extremity”) and πόλις (polis, “city”). Although there are many other acropoleis in Greece, the significance of the Acropolis of Athens is such that it is commonly known as “The Acropolis” without qualification.
