Obvious must visit in Athens. Compared to sites in other countries it is very nice that you are able to explore on your own and wander around the acropolis.

I was glad that part of the building wasn't covered in scaffolding! We managed to see the giant columns and get a few good pictures.

You can see the Parthenon from almost any rooftop bar and throughout Athens, but until you get up close you cannot truly appreciate the beauty and magnitude of this structure. I'm so glad that I saw this ancient marvel and the other temples on top of the Acropolis. Must see!!!

The Parthenon is a big building and it is definitely worth seeing when you come the Athens. The location is great with amazing views all around you.

Spent 2 house exploring the whole area. Don't be put off by the scaffolding it's still worth looking around and there's plenty to see. There was a queue for tickets but it moved very quickly. It's cheap to visit €12 and if you keep your ticket you can also visit the Temple of Zeus for free.

We had a guide who really enhanced our experience with her professionalism and knowledge of the area. Hearing the history really makes the site come alive. It seems as though it is always under restoration somewhere so be prepared for scaffolding.

What can be said, it is a beautiful piece of architecture, you can immerse yourself in the history and the wonder of the civilisation that created this. Beautiful place to visit, to reflect and to enjoy the real culture of the country and the eons that have passed there.
