Beautiful, but be ready to brave the crowds. Be sure to check the opening hours before hand. We went on election day and they were open for less hours than normal, but we were able to hire a tour guide there who was fantastic and negotiate our price.

When you first get admission ticket to Acropolis get the $30 package and you can use this receipt to enter lots of other sites. Very beautiful to visit

Another must-see normally included in you Acropolis tour. A stunning beauty, specially at night when lights enhance all its splendour.

This is part of the Acropolis. During high season it was 20 Euro but you also see the Parthenon and several other main attractions. This building was my favourite! It was small, beautiful, and still complete. None of the other buildings are fully standing.

This is simply another of the sites you see when viewing the Acropolis. All on the same ticket, well worth seeing.

People don´t pay much atention to this temple when they enter Acropoli because everybody is eager to see the Parthenon. This temple is to the right when we enter Acropoli and is beautiful with a amazing architecture.

Big area because of big "buildings". Get some history and exercise at the same time. Tour guide really helps to explain everything you are looking at.
