Sometime I wish they would build a high quality replica of the pantheon nearby on a hill so I could see what it supposed to look like. There is one in Nashville I'd will be visiting, although I wish it was on a hill similar to the acropolis

Well you can't really do that in Athens. There probably aren't any hills around that don't already have other ancient monuments on them. So you'd have to wipe out something else for a replica of another monument already available to see.

Besides which, a large part of the grandiosity of the Parthenon comes from its presence on the Acropolis. There's not another hill around that would match that.
