No one wants to spend valuable vacation time in Athens waiting in ticket lines, especially in high temperatures. With this skip-the-line pass to the Acropolis, save time by breezing past the often-long lines and going straight into the UNESCO-listed rock top complex. Then be free to absorb the Parthenon and other ruins— and the panoramic city views—as you wish, free from the constraints and crowds of a tour group.

I was told this was the best museum in Athens. It is nice and comprehensive but not the best. Has some lovely pieces and i would definitely check it out next visit. Could be better arranged.
