Came here on an excursion from my honeymoon cruise and it was amazing. It's hard to imagine the sheer size of this until you are actually there. To think it was built before electricity, modern transportation, wow!

The earlier you go the more time you have to see things and appreciate the place. Photos with so many people in them are a turn-off be rewarded with few crowds goo morning light and a chance to see it leisurely,

Not much for me to say that being on the Acropolis is just one of those experiences that is hard to put into words. That said it is probably the busiest tourist site in Greece and I would recommend visitors to go early before the crowds start to show and when it is cooler (before 9:30 AM). Another bargain is...

The reconstructed areas help you realize how difficult it must have been to construct in the first place. The size of the Parthenon is overwhelming. The history of use is amazing.

An amazing place, quite stunning with superb views. Could be a bit of a problem to anyone with walking difficulties as there is quite a bit of uphill climbing but well worth it.

I loved seeing the Parthenon and have wanted that experience since I was a child. Pretend you're the only one there and enjoy the setting.

Steeped in history, very much worth seeing. It's huge, much bigger than I imagined and you can't help but wonder how it was possible to build it 2500 years ago.

I have always wanted to visit the Parthenon. It may not be as beautiful as it was thousands of years ago; it is going through many significant renovations to preserve it but it is still magnificent.

Amazing history, part of Western civilisation, unmissable. Crowded, of course, as we all want to visit.

Seeing those columns left was amazing. After watching the documentary & the model structure of the Parthenon at the Acropolis museum I can just stand there & imagine the actual building. Simply amazing that it wa so well thought of & with basic tools how a beautiful, magnificent & amazing sturdy structure could withstand so many years if not for... More
