Hot, crowded, chaos, dangerous climb. It is terrific to see them rebuilding such an amazing monument. The view of the city is amazing. They need to install a railing for the ingress and egress.

Obviously a beautiful place and a must see for everyone who likes history and is interested in it. Try to avoid it in summer when it can be really hot and crowded. Best time to go is the low season when you have a chance to walk around and see the view without rubbing shoulders with hundreds of other tourists.

The Acropolis is a definite must see experience. Absolutely amazing views and the photo ops are spectacular. You need to pinch yourself that you are really there and at night it is lit up which is a definite must see

advice is to go early but it really doesnt make a difference - even in November. its in a major city so always busy - Zeus (God) knows what it would be like with the crowds and temps in summer, aarrrggghhh!!! make sure you research the whole site as there is so much to see in and around the slopes too.

Well worth the visit. Wear good walking shoes. Well signed posted. Good views. Very interesting how they are repairing the temples. The site is much bigger than we thought and very open which we expected.

We had visited this several years ago while on a cruise but had the excursion with so many people.
This time we had a fabulous private guide who tailored it to us. He gave us so much info about the history & architecture. It was a hot, muggy day & we were able to do it at our pace. He said the elevator in the back did not allow to see all the structures.
On our way home days later we ran into another couple who said the day they were there, the wind was so strong that it almost knocked them over. But, just like all trips, the weather is whatever it is.
It was such a great experience that we invited our guide in to have a drink as our guest.
Truly a great experience

Difficult to really describe the feeling seeing the acropolis and the Parthenon. The sheer age of the monuments was awe inspiring. A great engineering feat all those years ago.

Top attraction of Athens, even if the complex cannot be visited during the evening or night, it is one of the most beautiful views of Athens. At least for us, a family of four, it was! The atmosphere, the silence, the sweet light surrounding the whole complex throw it into another world, into another dimension, closer to gods and to the ancient Greece. Spectacular view of Athens from above, melting the sound of the city and the lights in a perfect balance with the silence and greatness of the temple. There is definitely a certain kind of energy that makes you let behind all the small and useful worries and thoughts and just live the moment! There is a certain big stone somewhere between the Acropolis and Hefaistos temple where everybody gets around when the evening falls in order to see one of the most beautiful sunsets in Athens. Which is great! Even if you have to climb in order to get there, the prize you get when on top compliments you with a very special feeling.
