Acropolis Virtual Tour

The Hellenic Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Acropolis Restoration Service, has devised a way for lovers of Greece to visit the Acropolis from afar: the Acropolis Virtual Tour. This tour includes high-quality images that can be zoomed in and out of, an overview of each particular location, historical information, and a descriptive map. "Visitors" can explore panoramas of the four main monuments: the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. Choices abound as to how the enormous images can be seen. By clicking directional arrows, it is possible to move to the left, right, up, and down to enjoy the Acropolis and its monuments almost as realistically as in person!
