One of the wonders of the world. It's beyond rating. Amazing, wonderful, enlightening. Along with the Agora, the location of the start of much of western civilization. Not enough stars to properly rate.

This is an ancient citadel located above the city of Athens, and there you can see the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance. It was build from c. 495 until 429 BC. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site is been in restoration since 1975, but...if you to Greece, you MUST go there!

The Acropolis is such a huge historic significance that you have to go. It's like visiting the Colosseum if you are in Rome. These are structures that helped to shape history. We went in the morning before the heat and sun became really high but that is also when all of the tour groups go as well so it might... More

The gloss of morning, the knife-edge of mid-day, the melting gold of evening light (around 7pm) create a new monument for the visitor. Choose your time of day and walk in the footsteps of the multitudes of human waves which washed across these marbles. Not to be missed. Also visit the far end of the rock near the flag pole... More

This has been on my bucket list since high school. It was amazing. The views of Athens from atop are breathtaking. Its hard to believe that this site has withstood the test of time and is still standing after all these centuries. We went right at 8:30am when it opened. We walked right on. By the time we left the... More

We hired a guide (Athena) who gave us one of our best travel experiences, ever. The whole site is absolutely amazing. Plan on at least three hours to take it all in..

This was a great visit. very expensive (12 EUR per person) the staff is annoying and too much present but the history and the beauty of this place make it a place to be seen. You can't enter with food of beverage except watter (evean with a baby).

One doesn't really need to be passionate about ancient history to visit the Acropolis. But if you are, it's even better. I cannot find the right words to describe it. You have to see for yourself. Make sure you: 1. get comfy shows 2. allocate enough time. Also, visiting the Acropolis museum is a good idea ( it completes it... More

The Acropolis is the best walk and thing to see in Athens. Not only is it amazing in itself, the views of Athens are spectacular. Don't go to Athens without visiting the Acropolis!
