“A Must-See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

There is so much history here! What's not to love?! If you burn easily in the sun, be sure to wear lots of sunscreen and/or bring a hat. There's no escaping this sun at this awesome site.

“History at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

It's hard to beleive how old this all is and that it is still there today. Lots of walking, but well planned and designed. I imagine its the same every day, but go early as there are so many tourists, and groups you won't get pictures without many unknown faces in them.

“It's the Acropolis....What more can you say?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

No words to describe this site. The views are well known to all. Don't miss it, but try to go during less crowded times of the day,

“Lots to See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

There is much to see on the Acropolis besides the Parthenon. There is a temple and other buildings. The view of Athens is beautiful from here too.
