The Acropolis has a number of buildings, all of which are fairly well sign posted. The Parthenon is the largest building and they are doing an outstanding job of reconstructing it. They have made great progress since I last visited two years ago. The admission price is 12 euro, but this includes admission to the Ancient Agora, Kerameikos Cemetery and... More

A bit pricey to get in, but the views are amazing from the hill. There's a small kiosk just outside selling food but it's very expensive.

To get to the top of the Acropolis you will need to climb stairs and go up ramps. everything is marble so be careful, if you move to fast you will slip. Once on top, the marble continues and it is not flat, so be careful, you can twist an ankle. There is an elevator for handicap people, but to... More

I can't review it as my daughter wasn't allowed to pass through the entrance as the staff there deemed she was dressed inappropriately for the site. She was wearing a long black dress with sleeves. We didn't notice in the hotel that in the light you could see an outline of her underwear. They were very rude and called her... More

This is truly an ancient historical site. Greece has tried very hard to make their ancient sites easily accessible. Like most of the ancient sites we visited while in Greece, it requires walking on irregular surfaces as you might expect. And of course this is on top of a hill, so there is quite a bit of climbing involved. The... More

Did this as part of a tour mainly for simplicity sake. The Acropolis is clearly elevated hence it means some walking and climbing of stairs. It also takes some patience as there are lots of other people wanting to see the same thing and manners get lost. That said provided you have some patience the effort if worth it. This... More

No visit to Athens can be complete without a trip up the hill to see where Poseidon and Athena fought it out for the ancient city's favour. I don't think I'm spoiling anything when I tell you that Athena won. The sights on the Acropolis itself are amazing, but the views from the top back across Athens are equally breathtaking.... More

A visit to the Akropolis provides good exercise as well as an introduction to Greek history. To access the site, you start at one of the theaters and then walk up to the Akropolis at the top of the hill. The historical information is well laid out and you can access a nice tour through your cell phone which explains... More
