This is a must to see if you are in Athens!
The size of the Acropolis is much more impressive when you are there than in a photo.
There is a bit of a walk and we went during the hottest part of the day...More
Not steady on your feet? Bring a friend to hold hands with because the hill is covered in rocky terrain! I was glad we had a knowledgeable, easy to understand guide because reading all the plaques in the hot sun would have been a beating....More
A must see attraction in Athens. Do not miss it. Go when it opens to avoid some of the crowds and heat. Greeks lack any organizational, people flow planning. No rhyme or reason to lines. Very frustrating. Some simple line processing that you see at...More
Collection of important historical buildings, notably the Parthenon and the Erechtheion but much else. Buy a ticket to include the other sites located nearby and enjoy a day in ancient Athens. You will need water, a hat and sun screen there is no protection on...More

We paid a decent amount of money, but there's nothing to see. Acripolis was in a process of restavration. Everywhere scaffolding, everything is fenced, it is not possible to peek. The price includes visiting the amphitheater, but it was closed. I think, they should either...More
Really enjoyable experience climbing up to the Acropolis, make sure you wear appropriate footwear as it can be slippery in places. We found it very hot and dusty and the cafe near the ticket office is quite expensive so make sure to take water.

Had some further thoughts since answering yesterday so hope you find them useful. You are probably booked on an organised trip but try to go as early as poss. to avoid most of the crowds and heat. We were there by 9 am. The coaches park on a level road and pathway from which you have access through the lower part of the Acropolis. Our guide took us down the road to a new set of steps opposite a bright yellow public phone as these are shallow and have a gentler gradient. These lead to another flat area which you walk along to the left and then there is a choice of 2 or 3 sets of steps or paths to choose from to the next level. On this level there are toilets (before you enter the site’s turnstile). These are on the flat. There are toilets inside near the Parthenon in the Museum building, but they are underground and down about 12 steps. Once you pass through the turnstile you are on the original steps which are steeper but there are places you can stop to catch your breathe. Many people were “admiring the view” when we went up. You can see the Parthenon from outside the official site as it is perch ed on the edge of the hill but obviously it is not as spectacular as seeing it close up. Good luck. When are you visiting?
