It is like a mixture of historical relic + unfinished restoration work. Restoration work is stalked with materials piled at sight.

This is a fantastic attraction to visit. Our local guide was very informative and gave us a wonderful history lesson, explaining the relevance of this amazing landmark and guided us through the centuries of its history. We explored from every angle and really enjoyed the atmosphere of such an historic and iconic monument.

Even with the huge cranes in front due to restoration efforts the Acropolis is still stunning and a must see if you visit Athens. I would suggest going very early in the morning not only to avoid the crowds but also as its much cooler then. It is also useful although not essential to have a guide to give a... More

It was great to see. Went back in 2007. The walk up was great, the tour guide was great. The view of the surrounding area was also great. What wasn't great was the construction equipment and scaffolding all over the main building. The tour guide explained to us that the workers in Greece have a "very laid back attitude" and... More

My visit to the Acropolis was an eye opener with history all around you along with spectacular views of the city. A word of warning for people a little uneasy on their feet that the ground is a little uneven and stoney.

My family and I went to see the Akropolis this summer on our Greek holiday. It was my 9 year old son's first international holiday and he was very excited about seeing the Akropolis up close. After paying 12euros, climbing up a not so well directed path, we managed a 10 minute visit before we were rudely told it was... More

Fascinating proof of ancient time. Like a stamp for Athens' beauty. Those who love history, can understand my experience.

Really enjoyed visiting this archaeological site. We went in the middle of the day (which probably wasn't such a good idea) but we still thoroughly enjoyed it. The scaffolding that is up around some of the features is a little distracting, but at the same time we understand that work us being done to maintain the site. It's an amazing... More

You can´t go to Athens and don´t spend a day to visit the Acropolis. A must go. Be prepared to walk a lot and enjoy one of the best views in town. I recommend take a walking tour to show you everything without getting lost.
