Unbelievable place - a very magical experience for me. Get there as early as possible since it gets crowded as the day progresses.

We went there during summer time. It was hot but the views were spectacular. The walk up there was abit crowded as it was peak season. Suggest to go in the morning to avoid the long queue at entrance. Ticket covers 5 other attractions as well so it's worth every penny.

The steps going up to the Acropolis were slippery. A woman fell and broke her leg so be very careful. It was very crowded on the day we went. The view from the Acropolis was beautiful. We enjoyed seeing the grandeure of the columns and the area. Unfortunately we sailed away before nightfall so we didn't see the night show... More

Long, hot walk stay hydrated and take a large, brimmed hat. A lot of construction going on but history is history nevertheless. Breathtaking view nevertheless.

Be prepared to walk and sweat, not much shade and loads of people. Go early, many tours arrive around 9:30 am and the area becomes loaded with people trying to make their way up to the top.

There is so much to see and explore here. Go first thing in the morning or later in the afternoon. Gets very hot even then. There are paths down and around from the Parthenon and a outdoor theater to explore. Give yourself a lot of time here and comfortable footwear. It is slippery on some of the paths. Bring water.

The history of the Acropolis is simply astounding from the building of the Parthenon to its destruction and reconstruction. Having visited the museum before going, I felt I was able to take in more. I also downloaded Rick Steve's audio tour which provided an excellent free audio guide as we walked around.

It's very busy, so be prepared to queue. It's quite steep to get to. There ins't much more to see than in the image. Unless you are in close proximity, I don't this it is worth seeing this exhibit.

Anyone that comes to Athens has to go to the Acropolis. You tour on your own so you can spend as much or little time as you want there. The hike can be tiring (wear good shoes, bring a large bottle of water, and LOTS of sunscreen). It was unbearably hot, which did not make the hike to the top... More
