When you see how many people goes to see the Acrópole and when you see that the price 20€ per person and when you see that the place still in really bad condition, I think the country should re-invest the money into their monuments and...More

It is a must visit in Athens. It is good to plan the site visit first and then go for the museum. Try visiting as early as possible to avoid the afternoon sun and also you get the correct sunlight for your photographs.

Loved it, we got the 30 euro deal which includes the acropolis and many other tourist sites. Best time I would go would be early and beat the crowds, also wear good footwear it can be slippery!

You can't go to Athens and not visit Greece's most famous landmark! The site is epic and much more impressive than I imagined it to be. Take a tour guide with you for queue skipping and some very interesting back ground stories!

So much history, so much to see! We spent two hours wandering around the site, and could easily have spent longer. If you go later in the day, which I would advise, bring something light to keep warm as the wind chill is quite significant.

Best time to visite the Acropolis is the earlier the better. They open at 8am for tickets. You will be able to climb without tripping over each other and before the tour buses get there.

For many years I've been wanting to visit Parthenon and finally got to visit it. Spent long time there on two consecutive days. The most irritating and offensive thing was to watch people striking odd poses, making strange faces infront of the iconic structure to...More

Very few words can really describe the incredible magnificence of The Acropolis. It is quite simply breathtaking in the purest sense. One has to visit to appreciate the mighty structures and incredible history attached to this iconic world landmark,

Go a bit early and get them at the entrance. The line moves quickly. I don't believe there is a way to purchase them online. Wear comfortable sturdy shoes and enjoy your day!

about 45 mins to an hour each way by taxi so that's 1.5 hours and 90 euros poorer (45 euros each way). queues this week about 30 to 45 mins at 9.30 but seemed to get busier as the day went on. so you could have lost 2.5 to 3... More
