“An Experience to Remember... Forever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Once you arrive at its feet you'll feel like in another Era! Worth visiting and paying the entrance fee.
To be on the top of the Acropolis hill and to star the contemporaneous Athens from a Historic humankind landmark is one of the most amazing experiences you'll have in your life.
If you're going in the summer please consider a hat and sunscreen. Don't bother buying water, there's plenty of drinkable free water for you there.

“Here at last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I've wanted to visit ever since studying Greek history at school, some decades ago so it was a real treat. We visited in April so it was not too crowded, or too hot. Wear good walking shoes as the paths are uneven and some vantage points require some rock hopping, plus you will walk some distances if you wish to walk around the base and see more.

“A world class site - scaffolding is irritating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Everyone knows that the Acropolis and the Parthenon is a world famous and world class place to visit, so really no point reviewing it.

However, it is covered in scaffolding for repairs at the moment, so if you are reading this and deciding whether to do your trip to Athens this year or in a subsequent year, then maybe hold off until at least next year when the scaffolding is hopefully gone. This really ruins the site at the moment.
