This is a proof of what mankind is able to do at its best moments. This is what innovation was 2500 years ago! This is what inspiring leadership can achieve.

It is simply amazing to walk around and be in the Acropolis, but a note about getting there. It is not an easy walk. The steps are not level and if you have any walking difficulties, I would recommend a walking stick of some sort. My sister had recently (a year previous) had knee replacement and she said there was... More

There's something magical being beside a structure that is over 2000 years old. I would have loved to have seen it in its heyday! There's a great view of Athens from the top by the Parthenon, and there's lots to see around the Acropolis. The Theatre of Dionysus is impressive, and you can definitely imagine watching theatre there. It's a... More

When you are up there you feel like you go back in time when it was a real temple, you feel all these magnitude of the height and the great appearance even if today only the columns remain there and keep the temple together with the help of steel structures, especially for greeks they should at least one in their...

My favourite place in the whole of Athens. I visited in April 2014 with my mother, and we purchased the ticket which lasts for four days and gets you in to lots of different sites (including the Acropolis) for twelve euros. This is a great deal. We visited at about 9am, which meant we avoided the crowds, and have even... More

One of the worlds most famous monument, which reminds to the whole world what civilisation means, The personnel needs to be more gently and ready to help people. No strikes should be done in such a historical monument.

I don't know what it is, but there's something very magical about this building. It can be seen from almost every corner of Athens and I think that makes local people a very proud nation - to know that there were educated and bright people many centuries ago walking same paths that they do now. I caught myself that its... More

Should not be missed. Along with other great ancient sites, all for the 12 Euro ticket (good for 4 days) you begin to understand the history and place of Athens in the pre-Christian March of time. Take the walk around the base of the Acropolis and investigate the nooks, caves and crannies, they add grounding to the high places!
