As homeschoolers it was unreal to actually get to walk between the ruins and know that it did exist, that the Greek gods suddenly came to life, that all the geniusness of architecture and more has real actual touchable existence.

Really nice view from the Acropolis. You are just visiting ruin of 2500 years and still giving you an idea of the Acropolis place and the life at that time. Including also how they build the place!?

If you are interested in ancient history, this is the place you should visit alongside with Troy, Ephesus and Hierapolis. Of outstanding universal and cultural value.

Don't have high expectations when you visit this place, without a guide its a very poor, neglected sight. Plus without a tourist its just "stones" as there aren't much explanation for the area. This place should be maintained and be more organised for tourists' interest. Overall, with a guide you might enjoy your trip here however bring Water and a... More

Very beautiful location and a very nice experience overall. I have to say, though, in winter there might be heavy wind, so prepare yourself with winter coats and beware of the cable car which moves a lot under wind :)

Like most ancient sites in Turkey you need to use your imagination or have a good guide book if you don't have a local guide to show you around. The view over the countryside from the top is stunning. Wear good shoes as the ground is very uneven. Hat, sunscreen, water essential.

One of the most beautifull ancient city in Turkey, don't miss it! Hugh city on a hill, it takes a long time to see it. Begin with the top of the hill and continue down the hill. Take a lot of water in summer. Really a wonderfull place!

The perfect destination for a day trip. I totally fell in love! The acropolis is on an unexpectedly wide area with hidden places to discover. I walked for 4 hours in every possible direction and wasn't able to see all of it. I spent a lot of time taking pictures though. The scenery is impressive and beautiful.

Very similar to the Acropolis in Athens, but much, much smaller in size. The Amphitheatre there is extremely steep....couldn't imagine how the people at that time can walk up and down those steps safely.
