The Parthenon, which resides on the Acropolis, is a must see for any visitor to Athens. Best to buy your tickets online before you leave home for an early-morning visit. I would recommend a tour to get insight from the guide. The Parthenon is amazing...More

Dedicated to the Goddess Athena, this is the most famous structure in all Athens. It is located within the Acropolis on the top of a hill and so is visible from far. Only the base, columns and lintels of the original structure are still standing....More

We got to the Parthenon around 9 am. This was great because we avoided much of the crowds and were able to view and take pictures without a bazillion people around.

For your visit, it’s recommended wear comfortable shoes and be ready to walk a lot, it’s worthy! See and feel centuries of history in this place. You can visit also the museum and continue to Plaka to enjoy a very well deserved dinner.
