Whats the difference between Acropolis and Parthenon? by Rita Q: I know its like a dumb question but seriously i got no idea.

A: Don't pay too much attention to Farnic. Acropolis means EDGE of the city, not highest part. The only time that The Acropolis was used as a fort was when The Ottoman Empire enslaved the Greeks. Gunpowder was stored inside The Parthenon (dedicated to the goddess Athena, Minerva was the Roman name for the same goddess since they just took Greek names for their gods) and blown up by the Venetians in 1687 when their navy shot at it. The only reason why you can see ANY Greek artifacts in England is because the Earl of Elgin (Elgin Marbles or, more accurately, The Parthenon Marbles) were "sold" by the occupying Turks during The Ottoman Empire's enslavement of the Greek country to him. What wasn't illegally sold to him, he also stole. Everything then was "safely" stored in a lovely dark and dank coal cellar therefore destroying these marbles to the condition that they are now in worse shape in Jolly ol' England than the marbles in their rightful place in Greece.

if i were to make a crossword puzzle and i used acropolis what hint would i give them? by Syd Q: I'm doing a crossword puzzle on greek, and there is this word Acropolis, and i need to make a hint out of this other then using the definition, and scrambling! PLEASE AND THANK YOUUUUU!

A: Site of the Parthenon.

How does the Acropolis of Athens meet the Definition of a Legacy? by Laura E Q: And why is it important to learning about the past?

A: Being on top of a hill and having endured centuries of change, from Greek religion to Christianity, it has become The Symbol of Greece and a direct connection of the modern people today to their past centuries ago.

What was the Acropolis used for in ancient times? by Snake_Lover Q: I need information for my project on the Acropolis. I already know about the different buildings there but I do not know what the place was actually used for long ago? I REALLY NEED THE INFORMATION!!!

A: It was a hill in Athens that was the site of 3 temples. The procession preceding the Olympics went up there and they placed a woolen cloak on a statue. It also acted as a defensible position in times of war. I found no reference to imply that it was a center of democratic meetings.

Is it possible for a 5 months pregnant woman to walk up to Acropolis hill, from the Akropoli metro stop? by aish r Q: hi, I am 5 months pregnant and visiting Athens next week. I read from the internet that Acropolis is a hill and several walking tours are available. is it really true that vehicles cannot go up there and only way is to climb the hill ? If one has to climb up the hill, how many kilometres is it, and how steep? Would you recommend me to stay downhill? Thanks in advance.

A: The road from the Acropolis station to the entrance and from there all the way to the Propylea is a gentle slope within your ability to walk it. The steep part of the climb is the last meters of the Propylea and what is more, is the slippery surface of the stones there. I'm also not sure that the elevator is operational but you can check at the entrance. Soft walking shoes with a grabbing sole is a must. It will be much needed on the way down. Alternatively you can walk to the Filopapou Hill that is on the SW of Acropolis and a much friendlier climb and have a full view of the Parthenon from there. On the second link is a photo of Acropolis from Filopapou. Enlarge it and you will see what you have to face. On the foreground you see some tent tops.That is the road from the station.On the other link there are views from Filopapou.

Acropolis Moon- If the full Moon is Overhead can we communicate with the Dead? by audine Q: I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of this information. I did hear that we could communicate with the dead or possibly a spirit when the full moon is directly over the Acropolis in Greece. We had an incident the other evening and think that a spirit of a passed loved one was communicating through another family member. The Moon was over the Acropolis.

A: you actually do not need the moon or even night. It can be done during the day.

what are the dimensions to the acropolis? by Pelagia Q: I have a project for math and i need the dimensions for the acropolis in athens greece . PRONTO !

A: 100 feet by 225 feet Comes from the first panel here. http://www.dkv.columbia.edu/vmc/acropolis/

What is the best and cheapest way to get from the airport in Athens to Acropolis, Δάφνη, area? by 773ER Q: I was wondering what the best method might be to get from the airport to acropolis area this month. Is the area good for moderately priced hotels? Thanks guys!

A: One thing I can tell you, If you are not greek don't get a taxi because they will make It for you really expensive! The best way is the metro! In Athens you can use the metro for everything, you have It in the airport also. Good luck!

what was the main purpose of the Acropolis? by Chase Q: Yes i know the Parthenon is there, along with many other building used to worship different gods/goddesses. But what was the reason to build the Acropolis? Also, if you know anything about the Parthenon that would be great too. Thanks!

A: The Acropolis was exclusively for the elite of Athens, and the Parthenon was the great Temple of Athena, patron goddess of the city.

How many steps lead from the base of the Acropolis to the Parthenon? by pinkpigeonchick Q: I need the specific number of steps there are on the Acropolis, as in how many someone would have to climb to get from street level to the Parthenon. Thanks.

A: I am pretty sure its 150 steps to the top of the hill. I live in Athens and I have only been there once! (on a school trip years ago!!) but it is difficult and definatly not something to try in the summer!!!
