Hotels near Acropolis

This ancient citadel, built in the fifth century B.C., towers over the city and is home to some of the most impressive ancient ruins, buildings, and artifacts. The most famous temple, the Parthenon, was dedicated to the goddess Athena and is considered the peak of Greek art. You can avoid long lines by joining a walking tour of the site. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen, as the walk up the hill can be steep and exposed to the sun. For the best experience, visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the heat and for fewer crowds. – Tripadvisor

    Go early!
    I got there, with a pre-paid ticket, at 7.30am. Areopagus Hill is on the way, so leave a few minutes early to catch views of the Ancient Agora. At the Acropolis, I was able to get people-free photos because I went early. I didn't have a guidebook so I didn't know the extent of the grounds. I thought it was just the Parthenon area. But there's a path to the top of the Odeon, and then a path down through other related ruins. When you get to the bottom, it's the tour bus entrance! I was going against the tide. I exited that way and had some breakfast.

    Worth the trip to Athens
    How could anyone one not give this five stars? It's one of the most notable monuments to civilization on the planet. Give yourself plenty of time and bring water. We went in May and if you can go in the off-season, that is best. We scheduled a separate visit to the wonderful Acropolis museum next door for the day before. It's a lot to do both in one day. The Museum gives you great context for the marble structures on the hill.

    Fascinating and enthralling
    My wife and I visited the Acropolis during a trip to Greece last October, as well as during an earlier Viking cruise in January. The tour in January was uncrowded and on a beautiful sunny day. In October, we were independently traveling and visited late in the afternoon. We had very little wait and the crowds were very manageable. We had a great view of the Acropolis from the terrace of our Airbnb. The Acropolis fascinates me. It is enthralling to consider all of the history surrounding the place. Our visit coincided with the full moon, which made the nighttime views that much more spectacular.

    A must see, mind when to go
    A must see in Athens and doesn't need more explanation. 1. Beaware when to go, use google maps to see the people. The queues are hours long when most busy (not the ticket queue). Usually around 18 is much better than around 10 2. There are two entrances, north and south. The north is an easier climb and taxi can drop at the entrance. Tip is to go in through north and exit through the south at the acropolis museum. Elevator for disabled is at the north entrance. 3. If planning to also visit more sites, then better buy a combi ticket at other smaller sites like agora, keramides and that ticket is valid for acropolis as well, jumping the ticket queue there. The combo ticket is valid for 5 days, €30

    Acropolis- A memory for life
    A experience that you will never forget. A must when visiting Athens. This historical site is mind blowing and is at least as cool as Colosseum in Rome and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt. The only negative thing I can mention is the tremendous cues. We came daytime and the line was around 400 meters. We asked one of the staff when the best time to visit was and she mentioned after 18 so we went back and there was no line at all. Another thing that was both strange and a little annoying was that you couldnt pay with card but cash only. I felt sorry for the people staying in line to finally reach the cashier desk and they had to turn around as they didnt have cash.

    Acropolis Athens
    A must if visiting Athens. We didn’t think it was with buying combo tickets, unless you’re particularly keen of visiting lots at archeological sites. There’s was still a long queue, even with ‘queue’ jump tickets. We waited about an hour to get in (we arrived at 9am). We did wait in the shade. You’ll find a number of people pushing in once near the gates. Fascinating to see the various sites. Be careful as the ground is uneven and the marble is very slippy. Thoroughly recommend

    A Must See Attraction, but Be Prepared
    Due to the overwhelming crowds visiting this attraction, changes have recently been made where they have created a lengthy set of cues to reduce the number of people inside the actual Acropolis proper. It gets really crazy once you arrive at the meeting point of these two cues, as there are uneven, narrow stairs and no one does single file, so it's a big, claustrophobic crowd pushing towards the actual entrance. Could be kind of dangerous, so if you have little ones, you need to be mindful of this rather unorganized process. And, since you're crushed together, it's an excellent opportunity for pickpockets, so be careful of that, as well. But once inside, while there are a lot of people, there is plenty of room to see all the artifacts at the top. As others have mentioned, you do climb a bit on uneven surfaces approaching the entrance, so wear sturdy shoes. Flip-flops, slides and heels should not be worn unless you want a nasty twisted ankle or worse. And, be sure and buy your tickets in advance. You don't want to have to wait in two lines, one to buy tickets, then one to actually get in.

    Definitely worth doing, but be prepared....
    Acropolis is a must see. But would echo what others have said here: buying skip the line tickets is a bit of a misleading scam. It does NOT give you direct entry, you will still have to queue when you arrive, along with the hundreds of others that have also bought Skip tickets online! Also, EU citizens under age 26 can get in free of charge, but you can't buy Skip tickets for them online, you can only obtain those tickets at the Ticket Office at the site. For what its worth, here's what I did, it worked well for me, in case it's of help to anyone. We were family of 2 adults and 3 children aged 17, 15 and 13 (all three of them eligible for free entry so I was reluctant to spend 75 euro on STL tickets unnecessarily). We visited on Thurs 29th June, went in via gates on south slopes (had read that its the quieter of the two entrances). I queued at the Ticket Office to get all my tickets (I was there at 7am but TBH I was still the only person in the line until around 7.30am), wife and kids arrived at 7.20am and joined the "Skip The Line" line, there was around 40 people already ahead of them at that stage (the first people in that line arrived at 7am, same time as me). Ticket Office and entrance gates opened at 8am, I paid for 2 adult tickets, collected the 3 x free entry tickets, then stepped into the other line along with family, went in no problems. Be aware that the Ticket Office doesn't accept cards, only take cash (a lot of irate people caught out by this, understandably so).

    Skip the line still means you stand in line
    We arrived around 9 AM and the line to get in (even though we already had tickets) was really long. It was in the height of tourist season, on a Saturday, and the crowds were overwhelming. A long line of tourists slowly snaked up the steep ramps and steps. Lots of tour groups. The heat was overwhelming and you need all the water you can carry. Some of the path is uneven marble rocks and you need good balance. But the Parthenon and the Erechtheion are truly amazing. Once you have seen it, try to find a rooftop bar where you can see it after sunset when the lights come on to illuminate it.

    A lot of ancient ruins but a must see
    This is the place EVERYONE wants to see and when you get there it is clear that EVERYONE is here! It is packed! It is a big site so it can manage but the Parthenon at the top of the site is rammed so getting up to it and back down is a lengthy process. Personally I thought the lower slopes offered the more interesting things to see as the Parthenon itself is now just a hollow shell with scaffolding around it. Nevertheless the site is impressive and worth going to see. We visited early ie 9am, along with most of Athens. It seemed to be less crowded in the middle of the day when it was hot so, if you can stand the heat that may be there better time to go.
