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

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

This is the reason you are in Greece. Expect a lot of people Wear comfortable clothes for moving around a lot. Bring water and an umbrella.

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.
