When on a cruise stop we travelled to Athens and climbed up to the Acropolis which is a must see. Suggest going early as it is really busy later on. It is fascinating and we had a tour guide who pointed out all sorts of features and interesting facts. ( You could say her job is in ruins!) It is... More

I don't think there is a need or a way to review the Acropolis, it is certainly the best and only jaw dropping monument in Europe.

Acropolis or "side city" is nice historic monument. The views from the top is excellent and inspirative. Going to Athens and not to see Acropolis is like you have not been in Athens.

An amazing place to visit. Yes a walk up, but not hard and many place to stop and rest, think, feel and the history. Its not just stone and columns, its what is left of history. And if nice day, the view from the top is breathtaking. Try to walk up one side, and down the entrance; that is two... More

Its a must... you can't go to Athens and not see the Acropolis. Just a for warning before heading up.. even outside at the bottom of the hill -- there are steps steps and even more steps. I recommend wearing good shoes that grip well as when the steps are wet it can be slippery. Once you finally get up... More

This is truly a walk through history, a gem on a hill. It's amazing to see the places used in so many tales, walk the footpaths as so many before us and overlook the amphitheater laced with all of the Greek mythology! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes strong sunglasses and carry sunblock in summer, since the white marble is... More

Amazing to see what remains 2000 years after it was built, and with the right tour guide this place can come to life for you again and again.

Amazing, and more amazing. This is what you come to Greece for, to imagine being there where Cesar was! Great place, beautiful views, nice walk up and down. Loved it!

It is impressive and you will stand there in awe - or at least stand there to catch your breath. Steps steps and more steps. Be very careful - shiny polished uneven steps - treacherous especially in the rain. Was very crowded when we visited (and I assume that is the case most of the time...)

The site speaks for itself-Just Do It. Be prepared for the stairs and uneven surfaces, wear appropriate footwear. There are toilets available at the bottom of the hill. Keep in mind you will be open to the elements with almost nowhere to hide, careful about the sun or rain. Enjoy
