Went there for New Years holiday. Great time to go, because there were no lines for tickets and the site wasn't crowded with tourists. Bought the €30/7 sites tickets, and had five days to visit the other sites with the same ticket. None of the sites had waiting lines at this time of year. The weather was nice also. Some... More

A bit expensive but well worth it to go inside and visit, it might take you a few hours to tour around.

By pure luck we picked the perfect day to visit whilst in the city for work. The sun was shining, a nice cool breeze and the place was almost empty of people. If you were to write down ten places to see before you die the Acropolis of Athens should be one of them. We paid to be taken round... More

Equal to the splendor of the Parthenon, the Acropolis does not disappoint. The hike up the hill was more than worth it to see the Acropolis in person. The multitude of summer tourists were a bit annoying, but that is to be expected when visiting such a magnificent historic landmark. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, bring plenty of water,...

This is my second visit to Acropolis... you get to experience one of the most important part of Greek history. The view from the top is breathtaking... you feel relaxed and get to enjoy the view of entire Athens. It's a short walk up hill but it's definitely worth it. Never miss this if you visit Athens.

You can't go to the city of Athens and not visit the Acropolis, the most important monument in Greece. Whilst going up you are surrounded by olive trees and escape for a while from the busy life of modern Athens. If you go in the summer make sure you have plenty of water with you and a hat, because there... More

Truly incredible - walking up to the acropolis itself is astonishing with so many temples practically littering the walk. When you read the boards it's amazing how many no-one new where there that it makes you wonder if there is even more to discover. The site itself is so astonishing you cannot imagine the age of it considering it's detail... More
