“Not just a bunch of ruins”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

It's a bunch of ruins, in a small area, and some of them are surrounded by cranes and scaffolding. Well, blame time and especially men for it. Already ruled out a visit? Don't. Just don't. It's more than ruins, much much more, it's History, and the Acropolis bears the scars of 2500 years of it. Yes, they built such things, with an incredible technique, 2500 years ago. And despite the time and man's action, it stands still. Amazing, just amazing. I just had one day to visit Athens. I went to the Acropols and returned happy. Visit took place in November, the temperature was nice and the site was far from overcrowded. 12€ fee, but the combinated ticket for Acropolis and surrounding archaeological sites costs the same. A special word for the greek authorities that despite the terrible period their country is crossing, did not ease the effort to preserve and restore such a wonder.

“Must see in Athens”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We visited the Acropolis in late September during our 4 day stop in Athens. Although there is very little left of the structures, I imagine it must have been quite extra ordinary when it was at its peak. There's a lot of construction going on in the Parthenon, so avoid taking pictures as you enter. Walk to the back and you can take better pics there. We arrived late in the afternoon when there was less people and it was great. I can't imagine going there when all the other thousand folks from ships arrive. We also enjoyed starting our walk from the entrance closer to the Plaka. Great views and good photo ops. I would recommend visiting the museum first so you can get an understanding of what the structures looked like before it's demise.

“It is what it is”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

One of the must historical monuments in all Europe if not the world.
Too bad its constantly surrounded by scaffolding.
Do not buy the ticket just for the acropolis which cost 12 euros,as you can buy a ticket for the whole ancient surrounding area around acropolis,monastiraki,plaka for the same price.
