Owner description: The most famous site in all of Athens, this large hill lies in the center of the city and contains a cluster of ancient ruins.

This is a great site to visit. Europeans are already familiar with historical sites, but for Americans it is even more amazing, walking the same paths that Greeks carved thousands of years ago.
Only drawback for this site is if you are visiting in summer, when cruise ships come to Pireus, waiting lines are enormous and waiting time is long. For this reason it is worth hiring guide, if you are in group, as they can buy tickets and get you in faster than on your own.
But with so many people around it is very difficult to enjoy this amazing site to the fullest, so come in Autumn or early Spring, when there are less visitors around.

What a view and amazing to see such great history from
so long ago. Get there very EARLY in the am before the
tour buses and if possible buy a ticket on line or locally as
to avoid the lines. Nice area to walk around! A forgot to mention
PICTURES!

Ancient Hellenic historical architecture. The holly rock of Acropolis is the point of perfect vew of Athens. Is the first place that everyone coming in Greece (Hellas) must go there.

Visiting here was a lifetime event for me. The climb up was a little difficult for my arthritic knees, but I took a walking stick and it helped provide some stability. Be very aware of your surroundings as the terrain is uneven and the marble is slippery. Uses caution and deliberate movements. It is quite the experience to view all these structures and imagine the activity and skill of the creators.
