I was attending a Bible convention, so standing on the Areopagus and looking at the Parthenon, recalling the Apostle Paul's words was a treat. The ability the ancient builders had was amazing too and the view of Athens from the outlook is wonderful. Theater of Dionysus is stunning. If you've never been, you need to see it if in Athens.

I loved my visit to the Acropolis, for all the reasons listed in preceding reviews. I loved it until I twisted my ankle because of the uneven pathways. The ground is most sand and gravel, and really old, smooth and uneven stones. The wind blows a fine layer of dust over the stones and they are extremely slippery. WATCH YOUR... More

YOu have to hurry up and see it before millions of tourists will simply trample it to dust... There are so many people there that I don't think this site will survive another 50 years. And it is well worth seeing - it will show you how much better ancient Greeks were at building things in comparison to current times... More

The beautiful part of the acropolis is the history behind it and the idea. Structutrally it is OK but nothing amazing. Most of it is only to be seen from a distance, and the grandeur of it could only be imagined rather than seen. Crowd is fast moving. You can only carry water into the site (and do carry); that...

I think header is explanining everything my thoughts abput acropolis. I came here to see much much more details and things but Ephesus in Turkey is really better than Acropolis. don't spend too much time just visit fastly and go to see elsewhere.

This is a not to be missed attraction. It's been going strong for 3,000 years and from the lines of people trying to get in it will be still popular in 3,000 years time. The climb up is not that bad and you can do it at your own pace. There are many other temples to see on the way... More

you cannot miss visiting the Acropolis and I recommend you have a tour guide who gives you the most important facts. It is quite busy and gets pretty hot in summer.

Make sure you visit the Acropolis in the morning. It was already crowded up there while I was paying my visit at 10am. Students can get discounted combined tickets. Don't miss the chance to visit all the historical sites near the Acropolis!
