4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Definitely worth going, make sure your mobile battery is fully charged! Safety on walk wear, none slippery, stairs and walk ways are marbles or pebbles. Hardly any railing, but I am sure the authorities will do something about safety features soon.

See my review of the Acropolis for a full summary but right next to the parthenon and almost fully restored. A note the original statues are now in the Acropolis museum. These are replicas.

It is hard to comprehend just how old this place is.....if only the walls could speak I am sure they would give us thousands of stories from across the centuries

Athens fascinates me when I didn't expect it to. This site is amazing, take a tour to get all the info and history. It is beautiful, remarkable and a piece of civilization that boggles the mind. The restoration is excellent and it's a highlight of the Acropolis

This was one of the most beautiful monuments in the Acropolis. The details are just amazing, too bad you can't get closer. I would recommend not to leave your camera, and your high zoom lens at the hotel this time around, is this is the best way to get the better pictures, as well as be able to appreciate the... More

Just awe-inspiring and a must see during a walk within the Acropolis compound. Be sure to walk around the entire structure for amazing photos and vistas.
