There is so much to take in. We have now been twice and hope that we get to go back when all of the cranes and cherry pickers are not there. We are lucky that this is still standing. Not to get into another discussion, but we have seen the Elgin Marbles many times and hope that someday, they will... More

The fact that these monuments to man's ingenuity still stand after thousands of years...This is a must see sight in Athens for any visitor. Be prepared to bask in the majesty of mankind's greatest achievements as you take in the artistry and remember that these areas were largely agrarian. This was the ancient worlds equivalent of landing a man on... More

It is stunning place, however when we are there, there is a construction work on going in Parthenon that made the view slightly disrupted. I suggest to come here in afternoon time because during morning and lunch time, this place will be very hot. Come here with some history background first, because if you did not, then it is just...

Everything that you come across would pull you back few 100 years back to the ancient greek history of Pythogeras, Socrates, Alexander, Aristotle, Plato, so on and so forth. If you love ancient monuments, it is one place that you must visit in this life.

Well worth what can be a difficult climb to the top but seeing the Parthenon makes it all worth while. Being that close to so much history is just amazing. Just be careful because the marble and stone in the walkways can be difficult to navigate especially when wet. Give yourself some time to enjoy both the Parthenon itself and... More

Visited Saturday 18th April 2015 on a most beautiful hot sunny day with views across Greece as far as the eye could see from the top of the Parthenon. The climb to the top was far from easy as it is definitlely slippery so firm flat grippy shoes needed, no heels of any sort. Camera a must so capture the... More

History was overwhelming at this place! So incredible and great views over the wider Athens area. We paid for a guide for our group of 6 which was $100 euro for one hour. She was good but to be honest you could probably purchase a book in town for $10 or read the signs and get the same information so... More
