Hiking up to the top of the Acropolis seems, at first glance, a daunting task, but the climb was actually pretty gradual. While the Parthenon is indeed impressive, my favorite structure on the Acropolis was the Porch of the Karyatids, sometimes spelled Caryatids, also known as the Porch of the Maidens.(For those who don't know, a caryatid is a sculpted female figure serving as an architectural support taking the place of a column or a pillar.) Lovely.
