One of our party had a badly sprained ankle and was confined to a wheelchair whilst we were in Greece. There is a maze of paths leading to the Acropolis entrance and whilst many of them have steps it is possible to get there without steps. The paths are a tad rough, so two people to push is a good...

This is one of those must go places if you are in Athens.Read before you visit here.There is a documentary at Acropolis museum which you must watch to understand this place. For a 2500 year old monument which has been destroyed so many times it is just a wonder that it still stands.These colossal columns are for all to see.There... More

No trip to Athens is complete without going to see the Acropolis. If you go summer make sure to take plenty of water as it does get really hot up there. Packed full of tourists during the day so get there nice and early.

The largest of the Temples is that of Athena and I can picture the streams of people going into it. The stones are shiny from the many many thousands of feet that have polished them. The preservation and management of such a site must be a huge job and I commend all who have helped preserved it. It was very... More

If going to Greece, the Acropolis is the number 1 must-see attraction. But don;t just walk around the Parthenon but go for a walk around the whole Acropolis, the nature is as attractive as the ruins.The tickets are valid for 3 days and allow visits to other city antiquity attractions. Remember to take a sunhat, water and sunscreen.

We thought the complex was well managed, though a little more signage would have been nice. Seems important to go to the Museum first, for perspective. Makes you feel really small and just a dot in time in God's eternity!
