We went see Parthenon/Acropolis with a tour guide (highly recommend going with a guide) and even with scaffoldings this was one of best 'spots' in the world. The teens and pre-teens in our group had especially good time learning about ancient Greece.

The effort to make the climb to the top is rewarded by excellent views and great information about this spectacular site. There are enough places to stop and explore that the climb seems pretty effortless. Enjoy!

Some recovering work is going on and the whole front side of the Parthenon is covered by scaffold, which pretty much ruins the experience. The price (20 euro per person) is pretty high even if there was no construction.

The Parthenon was built as a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. It was the centrepiece of an ambitious building programme on the Acropolis of Athens and it must have been a marvel of ancient architecture in its glory days. The walking tour of amazing greek monuments left us in awe, with the Parthenon its crowning glory. An absolute must... More

It is well worth the trip of many steps up to the top. Don't miss following this up with a visit to the Acropolis museum.

The temple dedicated to Athena. Breath-taking and humbling. Yes, there is scaffolding around and repairs are being made, but think about it's age and the dedication it's taking to preserve it so that we can see it and someday our children. We should all be grateful.

Nothing more important to see in Greece than the Parthenon! All important values that built today's democracies around the globe were developed during the Golden Years of Pericles and shall be remembered forever. You can't visit Athens and not come to the Parthenon.

It is easy to walk up to the Parthenon and to explore. I particularly love that you can wander and stay as long as you like -- no guides barking at you, or lots of restrictions, gives an immersion experience.

The entire Acropolis area is a must see attraction when in Athens. The walk up to the Parthenon is not demanding and the views of Athens proper from the summit are amazing. Although the walk up and tour of the site can easily done by oneself, it is best to take a guided tour as the guide will give a... More

The Parthenon was a temple in ancient Greece dedicated to the Goddess Athena. This is the most impressive structure in the Acropolis all of which was dedicated to Athena. Much of the Acropolis has been destroyed over the ages from many conflicts but the Parthenon is the most collected structure remaining. The Acropolis is at the top of a serious... More
