This is a must see attraction for anyone visiting Athens. The walk up has so many interesting sights along the way, you forgot you were going uphill. Leave early to avoid the heat of the day and crowds and don't forget your water and sunscreen. It is a beautiful building with great views of the city below. As wonderful as it is too look up at the Parthenon from the city and admire it, it is even more spectacular to be on the hill.

Unique and Perfect! You have to visit it,to feel the vibes and study it's architectural perfection that is reflected absolutely in tis beauty! Despite the fact the there is no staright line on it the eye understands everything as a perfect line.geometry and light study at its very best! Except from a god's temple Parthenon is a marvelous architectural construction.the energy of the hill is SO strong that nothing living fly over it! After Parthenon you have to visit the new acropolis museum, it is so close after all.

It is a must see. but please do some home work/reading prior since you would need to spend at least half a day walking there and see things that have to make sense to you. What you can realize is that Greeks enjoy a long history much before other nations...A must see. Take water with you.

Had no idea of its history, and the many changes to which it has been subjected. The history of the Parthenon at the New Acropolis Museum is simply remarkable and many of the original pieces are there. Wish I had visited the museum prior to climbing the Acropolis to see the Parthenon - would have given me a better appreciation, but even so, a remarkable accomplishment of an early democracy in every way.
