A remarkable visit!

If you decide to visit Acropolis, please make sure to do so early in the morning as in the middle of the day the sun is burning. I totally recommend you this lifetime experience!

Follow advice, go early to avoid heat.

Listen to reviews and travelers if the same thing is repeated by 10:30-11am in summer it is sweltering with no wind. It’s the number one reason to visit Athens for a reason. The structures make you imagine what the city was like in its day. Beautiful area with views of the town to the sea. You haven’t been to Athens if you haven’t walked the Acropolis

Loved the tour. Amazing, breathtaking. You deffinitely need a guided your, because there is do much to hear, before you see. We had an excellent guide, an we loved the stories about greek mithology. Due to covid, it wasn't too crowded which was good for us.

Breathtaking views.
Jun 2021
It was a remarkable visit, to see what was built so many years ago and destroyed by manking as well. The views are to die for and once you read the historic content, makes you realize what the Greek civilization acheived so long ago.

The Acropolis during 'Covid times'
Jun 2021
A 'pandemic positive' is no crowds - probably the least busy the Acropolis has been for very many years! Good to go early and beat the heat. Wearing of masks is required. If you have children, take ID to get a reduced price ticket. The staff are helpful and are positioned in different places around the site to guide you. Although there is quite a bit of restoration going on, it doesn't detract from the visit. It's good to see they are doing the work. There are great views of the city, but in my opinion the better views are from the top of Mount Lycabettus where you can see the city and the Acropolis.

Best View in Athens
May 2021
Nothing can describe the feeling of standing on the Acropolis. You can see the entire city and its so breathtaking. There is so much more than just the Parthenon. The Temple of Nike, Theatre of Dionysus, and other spots are also beyond incredible. If possible go when there aren't too many crowds, it makes it a much better experience.

Worth the visit
Jun 2021 • Couples
Early morning is good. Beat the crowds and the heat. 20 euros admission does not include the museum. We opted for the 30 euro price for 7 places for that price, just show the same ticket, good for 5 days at these sites. Acropolis, spent an hour or so up top, great views of the city too. Big scaffolding in the one side, Slippery marble, wear good shoes.

Go early

Go early. Beat the crowds and the heat. Don’t buy the combo pass, you can see everything except the top of the hill, by just walking around. There are cranes and scaffolding in the pictures.

Get there Early. Maybe don't do the Combo ticket.
May 2021 • Couples
Maybe 10 people at the site on a Monday morning as soon as they open (8am). There are guides offering their service for 20 euro a person. Alternatively, download the Rick Steves audio Europe app and walk around with headphones on which is what we did. As you can see from the pictures, this is very much restoration work in progress from the cranes and scaffolds. Took us about 1.5 hours for everything including slopes. We got the combo ticket but honestly it's really the acropolis and the ancient agora that are really worth your time.
