The Athens Acropolis


Acropolis in Greece


The Acropolis of Athens is probably one of the world's top two ancient ruins sites, along with Rome's Colosseum.  Seen here in this outstanding drone video by AirVuz contributor pasxox30, the Acropolis complex sits atop a flat rock formation that rises about 150 meters (just under 500 ft.) over the Greek capital city.  Consisting of the Parthenon temple and several outlying building, the great landmark was built in the 5th century BC on the initiative of Pericles, who led Athens through much of its Golden Age.

Check out these drone views of the Olympic Stadium of Athens, Greece, compliments of Drone.as.  It's part of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex in Marousi, northeast of the center of the Greek capital city.  The stadium was the primary venue for the 2004 Summer Olympics.  The stadium is also called Spyros Louis, in honor of the winner of the first modern Olympics marathon, which was held in Athens in 1996.  The stadium was originally completed in 1982 but underwent substantial alteration (including a renaming) in connection with the Games.

The Athens Marathon


Drone View of the 29th Run of Athens Marathon


Given the Greek origins of marathons, it's no surprise that they are regular events there.  In this video, contributor Aerial_Rizikianos used a drone to film the 29th Athens Marathon, the country's most prominent run.  As you might imagine, the notion of this being the 29th run does not count the historical run which started it all: the 26 mile covered by the messenger in 490 BC to let the people of Athens know that their city-state had decisively (and surprisingly) defeated the Persian army under King Darius I at the Battle of Marathon. 

Parthenon Drone Views


Parthenon, Acropolis, Athens, Greece


The Parthenon in Athens, Greece is considered one of the most important remains from the great Greek civilization which predated the rise of Rome.  Completed in 438 BC, the temple to the Goddess Athena was one of the centerpieces of a vast building campaign driven by the Athenian general Pericles and largely financed with funds from Athens' junior partners in the Delian League.  In this video, you'll get an aerial view of the famous ruins on a hilltop in the Greek capital, compliments of georgelek1966@hotmail.
