The Acropolis in Athens is a limestone outcrop surmounted by the distinctive shape of the Pantheon, a constant reminder of the glory of Ancient Greece. The Propylaea is the superb marble entrance gate to the Acropolis, built in about 430 BC, and considered by many to be architecturally the equal of the Pantheon. Built on a slope, it has five gates with enormous doors and wings to either side. It is a masterpiece of design, using sophisticated techniques to count counteracted optical effects that would have made the columns look too thin and the building squat.
The outer colonnade consists of 46 columns supporting 96 metopes with battle scenes. The inner, Ionic, frieze was a majestic 160 m (524 ft) long but was removed and taken to Britain by Lord Elgin in the early nineteenth century. The building held a statue of Athena that was over 11 m (36 ft) high and covered in gold. The extraordinary marble roof was cut so thin that light filtered through onto the statue. The Ionic Erechtheum is perched at the north edge of the Acropolis overlooking the city. Its original caryatid statues are in the museum.
Santorini is the epitome of a Greek island reached through a huge circular bay, which once covered by an enormous volcano.

It is thought that this eruption also destroyed Knossos, in Crete. The island’s classical name was Thera, and it was not until the thirteenth century that it became known as Santorini, a corruption of Santa Irina, the name off the patron saint of the island.
The cliffs are formed of bands of multi-coloured rock and first view of the island, with its sheer cliffs curving around the bay and rising almost 350 m (1,150 ft) from the sea, is breathtaking.
