This is a must see place of the world! My wife and I visited here and would recommend to anyone. My only recommendation would be to buy the €20 per person pass rather than the €30 pass, it's the same thing.

It is rewarding when a famous site lives up to expectations. We were prepared to just do a quick walk around but found we were engrossed by the ruins themselves and the panorama. We enjoyed wandering by ourselves on our own schedule and having researched prior to our visit found the signs sufficiently informative. Do go early as we did.... More

Amazing of course. There is a lot of info about various entrances so here is my experience: - Got off at Acropoli metro station and followed the signs to the Acropolis. You will end up on the road Dionysiou Areopagitou - Just turning onto this pedestrian road, you will see the Tourist Information Office - 40 metres to the left... More

Getting to the entrance of the Acropolis is a 20-25 min walk from the second to last tram stop. Entrance fee does not include a private guide or audio tour which can be from 15 e.u. pp to 100 e.u. pp or more. The structure looms above athens, with ongoing restoration work, some areas alreaady restored and a lot of... More

Can't wait to see the site but was disappointed with the slippery marble stairs and ground. I was glad I didn't bring my mum here. I am glad I didn't slipped!

There is nothing quite like the amazing Athens Acropolis. Absolutely amazing and breath taking, you will be in awe if the Acropolis and the surrounding views. You would be crazy not to go, if you haven't already seen it!!

Much easier to get to and explore than when my wife visited 20 years ago. Marble steps and paths are slippery after rain. Restoration is impressive and views across Athens stunning. Go to the museum as well to get a better understanding of the history.
