You really have to spend some time in this area and just take in all the Temples with its remarkable history.

This place is amazing, wonderful, unbelievable and imposing. It's one of the things you have to visit in your life. Parhenon architecture is out of this world. The 'Propylaia' are beautiful and a dominant structure that prepares you of what to expect inside akropolis. 'Erexthio' architecture is amazing. Just go up the Akropolis and sit anywhere and let your eyes... More

Scenery was beautiful and temple amazing - but a lot of people - hardly room to move. I would suggest an early morning or late afternoon tour. However, having said that nothing can really detract from what is the Acropolis - it really is awe-inspiring

Just sit anywhere in the Acropolis and take a deep breath watching the columns of the temples, the Theater, the Cariatides. It is just wonderful. Best to go towards the sunset and then go for a walk by the park nearby.

Best to go up for late afternoon, to catch the sunset. This beautiful temple is a must see and completes a day of temple/ruin trekking perfectly. Watching the birds swooping about it the afternoon sun is a must. From this vantage point you can see clear to the harbour. Tragically when this temple was destroyed and burnt, the surviving citizens... More

I'm not sure what to say that has not already been said. This is simply a place that one must visit if in the Athens area. Sitting on high with all the temples and views of Athens all around. I was awe struck. It is a climb to the top from where the parking is, so anyone with mobility issues... More

When you look up at the Acropolis before ascending the climb, you feel completely breathless. But when you get up there, it is the spectacular image you see in magazines and movies, but actually being there and experiencing it yourself is something else. My kids were so excited. It was a beautiful tour and is exactly what you would expect.... More

One of those places on everyones bucket list. Stunning! More so than you would expect. Still it rides the waves of its fame, supported slightly by the new acropolis museum. There is still some room for improvement in the overall experience.
