Fascinating, fantastic and falling apart. Went there with a colleague and we both agreed that is was very fascinating that people in Greece many years ago had the ability to build like that - truly food for thought. Walking amongst the ruins gave us a fantastic insight into the past and was very impressive. But it is also very visible... More

This is a must in Greece, it an amazing site well preserved. Be warned that the walk to the top is very steep. The view from the top is unbelievable. There is a shop at the bottom that sells drinks. This is a very popular site so expect a lot of crowds.

I have been many times at the Acropolis and I never get bored. Everything is perfect up there, the ancient temples, the view, the history.

Last year visited the new Acropolis museum and this year saw the real thing. Imposing structure which is in full renovation not restoration for the foreseeable future. We took a large party half way through a conference and went early in the morning. Excellent guide and beat the usual tourist buses. Goes without saying that if you are in Athens... More

You can imagine the glory of Ancient Greece as you stare at the ruins of this incredible masterpiece of Greece. It was the template for future generations of architecture, and still stands as once of the most classic designs in history. Hard to imagine that this site was once fully populated with buildings, statues and monuments at almost every turn,... More

If you go to Athens this is one of the must to see list. But for fellow travellers, I guess the best time to enjoy this is go early in the morning and avoid the crowd.

What can you say about the Acropolis ? This is a place you have to visit once in your lifetime especially if you consider that's where western civilization started from. Make sure you visit early in the morning if you're visiting in the summer because it can get very hot very fast.

The Acropolis is way too crowded, too expensive, too difficult to get up to unless you are young, and so familiar from pictures as to lose all surprise, but you have to go there. The first time I went, I made the long, slow, lock-step climb with 1,000 of my closest friends. And that was off-season in November. This time... More
