Visiting the Acropolis is simply an experience! This is one of the greatest historical monuments in the world. Once you're up there, it's a whole new world. If there's one place you should visit in Athens - this is it!!

Incredible. Awe-inspiring and magnificent. Remember to check opening and closing hours when planning your visit so you are not shut out. Wear good walking shoes too - not flip flops like amy do.

With temperatures expected to reach 100F, our group had an early start up to the Acropolis and also beat some of the crowds. While the Parthenon is the main attraction, there are a number of other "temples" and structures either on the Acropolis or visible along the way (Herodian's Arch, Temple of Zeus, Nike Temple, etc.). There is also great... More

It was August when we visited so it was very hot, very busy but well worth a visit. There are a lot of repairs being done and you need to be careful underfoot. Saying all that if in Athens don't miss going.

Acropolia truly colossal landmark. A must do for any bucket list. Whether you are an enthusiast or not, this area is well worth exploring. Depending on time of year make sure you have, sun protection, water, snacks, good walking shoes, (as the marble can be slippery) and prepare to video or take lots of wonderful photographic memories. The ticketing arrangement... More

Nothing can prepare you for the Acropolis. An amazing experience and one that I will always treasure. Make sure you visit it when in Athens.

I was very excited for my Greece trip since long for more reasons than one. We did a full day guided tour in Athens the very first day and I am glad we did. Visiting places like Acropolis with someone telling you the history and stories associated to the place gives altogether a different and better perspective to the place.

Liked: Everything about the archaeological site was fantastic, extremely interesting, with new things to learn every time! I am Greek and I have visited Acropolis dozens of times, the latest one with a guide. I think a guide really adds to the experience. Also, very cheap ticket that can be used for several other sites as well. Disliked: Nothing (probably... More

A must visit for a HISTORY BUFF !!, nice and beautiful walk around and in the Acropolis. It meets all the expectations, that are created by the hypes. Beware: There is a repair work going on..... you will have scaffoldings coming in your pictures which is annoying.
