    If you’re in Athens, seeing the Acropolis is a must. As of September 2023, you must buy a time slotted ticket to enter, meaning you enter within an hour window. This helps limit the crowds, but understand that there are CROWDS! But this is still one of the best places to see in Greece! The view of these architectural marvels is breathtaking. The view of Athens is unrivaled.

    It is best to come first thing in the morning - it is cooler in the summer. Bring water with you.

    We visited the Acropolis Museum after spending time on the Acropolis. This is a big day, particularly in summer. We enjoyed the Museum as it helped to fill in some the gaps and the displays are fascinating. The sculptures and art is impressive. The excavations under the Museum are worth viewing. The venue can be crowded and having a guide to explain certain features is highly recommended.
    It is definitely worth pre-booking tickets to avoid the queues. If we had had more time in Athens, we may have done the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum on different days.
    An excellent museum.

    Absolutely breathtaking and not to be missed but there must be a concern to the monument by the number of tourists visiting each day. We booked a wee tour with GetmyGuide. The guide was very informative and great value.

    The museum is a lot bigger than you would think. We really enjoyed viewing all the different statues, though there were a lot more funeral monuments than Greek god statues than I would’ve thought. Definitely worth a trip, but the acropolis museum is more interesting!

    Breathtaking views across Athens with a small Chapel on top. Save your money and walk. Walking is quicker and cheaper than the funicular

    Historic stadium dating from the 4th century B.C. We stopped off during a Viking excursion to Athens. I thought it was amazing to have the stadium where the first modern Olympics was held on the site of the historic stadium. It was spectacular to have a view of the Acropolis in the background.

    The Temple of Hephaestus, located on the northwest side of the Ancient Agora of Athens, was a sacred site dedicated to the god of craftsmanship, metal, and fire. It is one of the better preserved ancient structures, and architecture is stupendous: including intricately laid out and decorated marble ceiling.

    The whole temple appeared to be meticulously carved from marble, and it is marvelous that one could walk 360° all the way round the temple with only a rope cordon that is just about a meter away from the marble walls.

    The Temple of Hephaestus offers a glimpse into the religious practices of ancient Greeks and their reverence for Hephaestus, the god of invention and craftsmanship.

    The intricate marble columns reflect the architectural style of ancient Greek temples and the artistic excellence prevalent in their construction methods.

    I would have loved to see a 3D model of what this temple looked like in ancient times or even have an immersive virtual visit. I guess such extra trappings would come in the future. , For now, this site is included in the Ancient Agora ticket, and for me, it is its crown jewel.

    This is absolutely worth exploring. The temple of Hephaestus is the highlight and I’d suggest getting an audio guide for the agora.

    The Erechtheion is the second largest temple on the Acropolis. It consists the Porch of the Caryatids with statutes of six maidens on one side and Ionic columns on the other side. It is not as crowded as the area around the Pantheon. There are great views of the city.

    The Herod Atticus Odeon is an impressive theater built into the hillside below the Acropolis. They were preparing it for a concert as we viewed it walking up to the Acropolis. From above, it is marvelous looking down from the top.

    Anafiotika is a small neighborhood at the base of the Acropolis in the Plaka. It has narrow walkways going up and down the hills with several restaurants and residences. My wife and I had dinner on the roof of one of the restaurants and enjoyed the full moon rising with the Acropolis lit up behind us. It was enthralling.

    You can see the full 360 degrees from the top of this hill ( by the monument ) including looking over the acropolis and the other historic sites by it. Not too difficult a walk up with lots of shade.

    Great location for seeing the sites in Athens. Superb breakfast worth 15-20 euros for two persons. A great selection to accommodate most any appetite. Friendly staff. Metro line closeby (300m). Many good restaurants and I recommend Bandiera.

    The Temple of Athena Nike is the small temple on the right as you enter top of the Acropolis. It has Ionic columns and is fairly simple, but is well preserved. It is not the Erechtheion temple with the statues of the women. They are two different temples.
