What do you say, that hasn’t already been said about the awesomeness of The Parthenon? My suggestion is GO! You will decide whether it was worth going or not. If you do not enjoy being marveled by beauty, then stay home.

Must go....try early in morning first thing when they open that way you see the sunrise and avoid the hoards of people in your photos. Same applies if you go in the evening before closing. Note opening and closing times vary with the seasons.

This did not disappoint! It was so much better and impressive than I could have imagined. The price was 10 euros to enter but incredibly worth it!

Definitely don't think taking a 2-year old to the Parthenon is a good idea. Some parents brought small children when we were there and they were tired, hot and crying.
