Its been over two decades since I last visited the Parthenon. The columns are incredible and just being at the top of the hill with all the views of the city are simply awe-inspiring.

My Wife and I were able to see everything in 20 minutes, amazing monuments still standing from thousands of years ago, I recommend going in the morning to avoid the crowds, it was very nice.

This is, obviously, a must see if you are visiting Athens. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, it is a hike to the top. Breathtaking once you've reached the top!

Yes it is amazing! And yes, it's on a billion or more peoples list of places to see, so go early, early in the morning if you go in the summer season. Or go out of season!

I have seen this temple a large number of times since I was a little girl and it still fascinates me. It is the "diamond" of the Acropolis and basically of Athens. It is a good idea to visit firstly the Acropolis museum and watch the video regarding Parthenon before you actually visit Parthenon. Everything will make more sense. Admire... More

A must-see landmark in Athens. Enjoy a day walking in the city as well as around the remains of the past.

It can be a little challanging due the the high number of visitors but somehow the crowd is moving smoothy so there is no rushing or bump into people. Go as early as you can because there is a pretty hot in the middle of the day

An instantly recognisable location - truly iconic... Be aware that the paths and steps leading up to the Parthenon are broken and, in some places, quite steep but it is worth the walk. Truly a spectacular place... The building is undergoing work/reconstruction, so expect scaffolding and a large crane, but this does not detract from how incredible the building actually... More

If you only can do one thing while in Athens, then visit the Parthenon. A must-see staple of Athens and Greece. Really impressive up close in person. I had fun walking around and enjoying the same sights and sounds like the ancient Greeks did. Go early and on weekdays to avoid crowds. Bring water and sturdy footwear. And be careful... More

This is the ruins of a temple in Acropolis dedicated to goddess Athena. The successor to the great olive tree brought from heaven is there! This 2500 year old ruins is still very beautiful. Try to visit in the early morning to avoid crowds.
