Equal to the splendor of the Parthenon, the Acropolis does not disappoint. The hike up the hill was more than worth it to see the Acropolis in person. The multitude of summer tourists were a bit annoying, but that is to be expected when visiting such a magnificent historic landmark. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, bring plenty of water,...

This is my second visit to Acropolis... you get to experience one of the most important part of Greek history. The view from the top is breathtaking... you feel relaxed and get to enjoy the view of entire Athens. It's a short walk up hill but it's definitely worth it. Never miss this if you visit Athens.

You can't go to the city of Athens and not visit the Acropolis, the most important monument in Greece. Whilst going up you are surrounded by olive trees and escape for a while from the busy life of modern Athens. If you go in the summer make sure you have plenty of water with you and a hat, because there... More

Truly incredible - walking up to the acropolis itself is astonishing with so many temples practically littering the walk. When you read the boards it's amazing how many no-one new where there that it makes you wonder if there is even more to discover. The site itself is so astonishing you cannot imagine the age of it considering it's detail... More

Visiting in August is hot! We used the hop-on hop-off bus. The walk up is tricky for some. Wear good footwear. We saw a few people slip & fall. A great experience for the whole family. Take bottled water and enjoy.
