Nashville-hop-on-hop-off-tours Old Town Trolley Tours

As the vibrant capital of Tennessee, Nashville has earned several monikers over the years. Once a sparsely settled trading post founded in 1779, the cosmopolitan city is now a popular tourist destination. A leading center of higher education for more than 100 years, it was dubbed the Athens of the South in the 19th century. Because of its reputation as a mecca for singers and songwriters as well as its music publishing industry, Nashville is also heralded as the Country Music Capital of the World. The area centered on the intersection of Second Avenue and Broadway is a popular destination for locals and tourists with its shopping, dining and entertainment venues.

Nashville Parthenon

The Parthenon stands proudly as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville’s premier urban park. The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals. – Website

Originally built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures, which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon dating back to 438 B.C. The originals of these powerful fragments are housed in the British Museum in London.

The Parthenon also serves as Nashville’s art museum. The focus of the Parthenon’s permanent collection is a group of 63 paintings by 19th and 20th century American artists donated by James M. Cowan. Additional gallery spaces provide a venue for a variety of temporary shows and exhibits.
