Brilliant place to visit, just don't buy any drinks! You need a tour guide to explain everything to you. It's spread out over a large area. Wear good shoes when you go there. Fat and old people may struggle up the hills. We went on a Sunday and it was free, maybe because we didn't go there till 2.00?!? Underground... More

The Acropolis has always fascinated me, since school days back in the late 50's. It is so ancient and if you use your imagination, you can feel what it was like thousands of years back. I love it. Take time to wander around, this beauty is not meant to be rushed.

A really great site and definitely a must visit. Just be prepared to pay 20 euros for the entrance fee, and wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking and climbing to be done.

The Acropolis has always been a wonderful place to visit with the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena (6 beautiful female statues) being highlights. Visually spectacular from all over Athens. Worth walking up from the old Agora to that entrance. Getting there early works well as there are less visitors first thing. The stone-carved seats in the theatre are remarkable... More

We enjoyed the entire site. We arrived around 9 am and were able to see much of the site before it got crowded. Go early and make sure to visit mars rock on your way out

The scorching sun was troubling, and the climb could be exhausting if done at a stretch. However, our tour guide Vicky, ensured that we took frequent rests. She was kind (and clever) enough to stop at points where we had a story to listen to or a scene to view. Whether it was the theatre or the stadium or the... More

There's nothing I can say about the Acropolis that hasn't been said before, so I'll provide some common sense advise. From the drop off by tour buses, hop on/hop offs, and taxis is a bit of a walk - not too strenuous - but be prepared for slight exertion. That being said, in summer have water to sip on (it... More

Stunning area - Acropolis which is the site containing the Parthenon among others is just a must do. Take a tour (Rick Steve's does a free audio one) and it makes this more than just looking at ruins. Depending on your love of ruins you can purchase the €30 pass that gives you access to sights outside the Acropolis (although... More

The crowds can get big but you can't go to Athens and miss this! Truly amazing. Be sure to wear a hat and take some water, there is little to no shade. Stunning views.

A must see attraction of Athens. Very good view of Athens from Acropolis. For a multi site ticket I paid 30 euro on 3rd Sep 16. and I believe Euro 20 is for a single entry ticket to acropolis. some TA members still keep writing Euro 12 for the multi site ticket, i don't understand from where they purchased the...
