Ladies, make sure you wear flat shoes. I recommend going to Greece during the off season months. We were just there Nov 12-19 and it is the perfect time. The Acropolis won't be as crowed and the tours are a lot smaller.

It was a long trek up lots of steps & walk ways to make it to the top. Well worth it, but make sure you wear sunscreen, a hat & also take a bottle of water. No other drinks are allowed!

I had always wanted to visit the Acropolis and my dream came true in November this year. It was everything I had thought it would be, it is truly awe inspiring and the walk up the hill is both worth it and powerful. Once you reach the summit it is very humbling.....and true master piece and something you will not... More

The Acropolis was astoundingly beautiful and awe-inspiring to see. It's incredible to be able to stand on ancient grounds looking up a monument that is thousands of years old. Entrance to the Acropolis also includes entrance to the ancient ruins of Agora. The Acropolis museum is a great place to check out before or after visiting the site of the... More

The name Acropolis is a city itself. There is so much to discover and a story behind it. Spend your time to see every place around this place. Agora, Parthenon, The acropolis musuem, Roman market place etc...so much to see.

This is a working archaeological dig which allowed the imagination to wonder what else will still be found.

Athens metro is easy to use and it stops near the Acropolis. Get ready for a long walk up to the top. Beware of dog waste on the streets as you creep up the many steps to towards the top. We went on a cloudy day and it started to rain. The steps became slick and I saw a few... More

The view from the top of the Acropolis is worth the climb, but learning about the history of this fortified hill and the impact it has had on Greece and the entire world are the real value to be had from visiting this place.

It was a hot day and I didn't want to climb up the long slippery path so I found a bar near the parking lot and sat in the shade enjoying the excellent view of the Parthanon whist sipping a cold beer. My wife returned an hour or so later and admitted that I might not have enjoyed the climb... More
