Amazing experience

Awesome site straight out of the history books. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear. Visit early in the day to avoid the tours.

Well worth the hike up. It can be accessed by two sides. Take the main entrance. Well worth the trip! Its beautiful. The view from there is breathtaking. try to pick a time when people are eating dinner or as early as possible to avoid the huge crowds. Well worth the effort.

Standing in its former glory this place is no longer the home of just ruins. Mysterious and stunning. Buy a ticket and visit for three days, a very pleasant walk accompanied with the most breathtaking view of Athens and beyond.

I was really looking forward to this visit but was disappointed when we got the that there was so much work going on all at one. i understand they are trying to restore what's left but there were cranes and worksites all over it which spoilt the experience for me. still a good visit, where else could you see this?

If you are even remotely interested in history, Greek culture, this is an amazing site. The hike takes a little while, but along the path there are many interesting things to see.

It is hard to imagine how old the Acropolis is and how advanced their technology was so long ago. The architectural details are amazing and the views of the city are spectacular. Make sure you see it from where the Greek flag is mounted for the best view.

We arrived on Good Friday so we waited for the place to open at 12noon. We didn't have a tour guide so we just went there and rely on information from reading materials present in the site. Nevertheless the architecture was impressive. I'm glad we went to the Museum first and know the details before we went to the site... More

Amazing. So much history and mystery. Very well preserved. Very handy that you can buy a ticket for all the ruins and use it within 3 days or so for about €15,20€?!
