What can I say about the Acropolis that hasn’t been said? It is the focal point of Athens and a must see – one of the top sites in the world. I heard some complainers saying the 12€ entrance fee was too much but they didn’t figure out the cost. TIP – if you purchase the Athens historical site combo... More

Small but very impressive structure. Nice intro to the main attraction, the Parthenon. Be extra careful as the footing is a little slippery due to the smoothed stone from all the traffic.

A little more interesting than the adjacent Acropolis, but there are many other sites of equal grandeur and with more comfortable access.

The first time I visited The Temple of Athena Nike, I was just 15 years old. I was so impressed that I went on to major in Art History in college. On this particular day that I visited, which was on a Thursday, the Acropolis entrance was free. I would advise going early in the day. Later on, the heat... More

The cost of your Acropolis ticket includes visiting this temple. It really is a spectacular site / sight. Take the time to really appreciate it and what the area and its history has to offer.
