Although it's a long walk, you can take your time & stop to admire the sights & treasures along the way. Great photo opportunities.

Read a little before you go. Contemplate the beauty in awestruck in silence. Consider the Rampin master; the first individual personality emerging from stone so many hundreds of years ago. Think of the West, the visible expression of the democratic principle standing in ancient stone.

it is the ultimate landmark not only for Athens but for whole Greece. It is a 5* touristic destination. You should visit and try to leave the archean spirit.

You can't go to Athens without climbing up the Acropolis and seeing the Parthenon. Sure you can see it from every part of the city but there is no substitute for getting up close and personal where you can view the architecture of the main temple and the many others that line the Acropolis, take great photos and when you...

Of course the Parthenon is amazing; that's one thing that most visitors see while in Athens whether up close or from afar. On the day that I decided to use my 12 Euro ticket to go, I did not realize the time - it was about 4:15. I was informed that I'd have 30 minutes before I'd need to leave.... More

You just can't visit Athens without visiting the Parthenon! I suggest not buying chinese-made souvenirs though, get something traditional instead!

On my visit to Greece, this the first attraction I want to see. Already I read the stories about the monuments in Athens. I stayed at the Hilton hotel Athen, even I booked the room with Acropolis/Parthenon views! I Arranged the guided tour with Chattours, actually I booked Athens sightseeing tour, but they show only Acropolis, and the museum only!... More
