“Too hot and slippery”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

If you cannot help visiting it in the busiest season months ( as was my case), brace yourself for the heat up there, take a bottle of water with you and try to wear shoes with well padded soles, such as tennis shoes. I saw plenty of people slip and fall!

“A Must”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a beautiful and large visit with many things to learn and see, and just to walk around to see the beauty of ancient Greece. There are water vending machines inside as well as a water fountain, make sure you hydrate while walking around!

“Great views of Athens. Monuments were mostly under partial construction/works.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Be prepared for a bit of a climb. Please go in the evening(closing time 1830 on weekdays)...its simply too hot to enjoy it fully anytime else!

“Picturesque”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Just like you see in the history books. Very cool to see all the landmarks you see and read about in books in person.

“Fabulous ruins”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Great ruins & you get so close to everything. It's so cheap & worth every penny. Fantastic. Wear flat shoes as the walk up is quite steep.
