Situated inside the great Acropolis, and the most iconic part of it.. A lot of stories runs behind it, it's having a big restoration since years and they're doing great job. If you're visiting Athens, you'll definitely will be visiting the Acropolis therefore you'll visit it

Wow! Amazing feeling to be up close to history. The views are 360 degrees of the city. The architecture is out of this world. A must see.

when you go Athens, you have to see and experience the breath taking sceniries in Acropolis, located right in the middle of town, and lots of cheap reataurant underneath. Be careful with pickp[ocketers they work in pairs pretending to be tourist.

There is not much I can say about this that has not already been said. The sole reason I wanted to visit Athens was to see the Parthenon and I was not disappointed. A perfect opportunity to walk in the history of ancient Greece.

Great historical site in the birthplace of modern civilization. A little disorganized, but did offer a way to carry my 11 month old daughter up to the top in a complimentary strap on baby carrier.

When you see the Parthenon it helps to imagine what it would have been like during the Golden Age of ancient Greek civilization. Before it was used as a warehouse for munitions and became a target for a mortar shell that blew it up. Imagine it sitting atop the Acropolis where people in the city could see it above everything...

This is the highlight of Athens. It can get hot, very hot with not alot of shade, so I recommend going in the afternoon or early morning. Plan on 3h

What a magnificent building. I tend to agree that the scaffold erected around does detract somewhat from the elegance but can be forgiven. The walk is along a car free zone up some steps pay and you are free to roam and wander around. The sights of athens are breathtaking and shows from this height how vast a city it... More

In the same area as the Acropolis. This is very well preserved. Renovation work was going on one of the facades.

The Parthenon is an amazing, almost overwhelming walk into the past history of civilization. What they built, how long ago it was, the great people who walked before you, leaves you in awe. If you go to Greece this is a must see. Not easy walking if you are physically challenged but worth every step you take. A special thanks... More
