For History enthusiasts its a great place to visit.

Buying the ticket to go up and visit is a must as the view from atop is breathtaking with the entire Athens leading up to the view of the ocean.

The ticket is 12 euros but is also applicable to other historical sites and is valid for 4 days.

Acropolis literally translates as the "upper city", has some of the most photographed buildings on it. The walk up is not too difficult, even with young kids. On some days the entry is free, so it would make sense to look up these dates in advance, otherwise entry is 12 eur per person.

I went here twice while in Athens, once with a group of friends, then once with a tour guide. I reccommend a tour guide, as you can learn so much about the history of Athens and the Acropolis.

just gazing at it makes me feel the magic of the ancient times, even at night when it's lit up from all angles, still gives me chills by just thinking how beautiful this mountain is

I visited Acropolis a few monyhs ago. I had the chance to feel "in situ" the fantastic world of the Greek Mithology. Being there and walk along those marble columns, sent us back to the time were greece was the center of the world. Absolutely recommendable for those who like history and for those who love mithology.
