Visited early in the morning before the heat sets in. The climb up is not to bad, lot to see on your way up. The entrance to the Parthenon was for a while blocked by a variety of groups from cruise ships, creating dangerous situations...More

This is a must see site in Athens but the ticket line and crowds exploring the site is extreme! We used the Rick Steves audio guide from his App and it was excellent. You can go at your own pace stopping and starting the guide....More

We went early and got there by 8-00am opening time and loved it! By about 10.30am the place was packed with tour groups! Go early and enjoy - 20 euro wntry and well worth it!

The signs are awful. I was giving directions to lost tourists on every side. But, hey, it's the Acropolis so you have to visit it!

This was the biggest let down of our trip. It is one of the premier things to see in Europe and I was very excited. I knew the gist of the building's history but had zero opportunity to experience it. There are one million people...More

This place has such beauty and majesty! It makes you feel proud to be a part of the human race! And envious of the time when it was created.

The place is a true icon and, if you have the legs for the walking, is worth visiting. At EUR 20 it isn't the cheapest attraction in Greece. It is also - as it has been for decades - being restored. People need to appreciate...More

The Acropolis was beautiful and we enjoyed our visit. It is large and several other temples are on the premises. Be prepared to walk up hill for quite sometime and slippery rocks to. Loved the history involved.

Hi Emma! I would recommend 2 days. You certainly could do it in 1 day, but if you have children between 10-15 yrs old (free admission) and are enthusiastic about Greek history and what not, I'd suggest 2 days. The Acropolis... More

Airport to center city (Syntagma) cost us 9 Euros each. It's super easy to figure out from the airport. Just follow the signs. Acropolis is big. Listen to Rick Steves' audio tour for good overview.
