You have to see if in Greece either during day or early evening. Try miss the crowds and go early or late. Take water with you as the shop outside the ticket office charge 3 euro for 250 ml water - thieves!

Acropolis contains a plethora of temples and your visit will undoubtedly contribute to the restoration efforts. I hope I can return (the third time) and see it all rebuilt.

Take a guide, be careful not to get lost and enjoy. Try to see it at night from somewhere near like Monastiraki.

One of the main reasons of our trip to Athens was to visit the Acropolis and stand in its grandeur. I have got to say, it did not disappoint.
