Sitting atop the Acropolis, the Parthenon is the most recognisable of the ancient temples and was certainly the highlight for me. Get there early (by 930am it was already getting busy). You can opt for a single entry ticket to the Acropolis, or a multi-day...More

I have always wanted to see the Parthenon and it was a dream come true. Visited late morning on an -all-site ticket (ask for Senior and Student discounts if applicable); it was very hot and although there were many other tourists it was not over-powering...More

You will hear "go early" and you will hear "go late" we found that if you bring water bottles and patience the time of day is not important. It is just amazing what people can accomplish in the absence of modern distractions.

Parthenon, dedicated to the goddess Athena, the people of Athens considered to be their patron / protector goddess. Very grand even its under repair.

Getting into the Parthenon is pretty difficult. We waited around 40 minutes in the hot sun as there are only 4 turnstiles to enter. It's not well staffed either so it takes considerably longer than it should to get through. It was a dream come...More

Of course you have to go. It's amazing. But try to go first thing in the morning or early evening when it's less hot and much less crowded.

I have been to historical sites in various places and in various states of upkeep. I was disappointed with how well preserved these ruins were given the amount of EU funding which was lauded in the signs around the location. It is not clear which...More

Yes you have to have a ticket. You can buy a ticket that gets you in to several attractions for 30 euro. I would advise going early in the morning before the tour buses or later in the afternoon, once all the busses leave.
