The penultimate symbol of Greece Is still Undergoing nips and tucks. Too many tourists clambering up The rocky outcropping and we were in that mix. Getting up early to be the bird that catches the silence and the sun is the must thing to do. Avoid the hawkers, the noise, wear sensible shoes and use your imagination to guide you... More

This grand site was a great start to our two weeks in Greece. We walked the site first, which I would recommend. We got a great overview of who is who in ancient Greece. To think and see how sculptors, architects, painters and people big and small created something as magnificent as this so very long ago

There are no set guided tours offered, but there are private guides available up there, expensive (100 euro an hour), supposed OK if you are a group .... if not, just... More

I have always loved Greek history and to see the Acropolis in person was amazing. I went in February, so there were no crowds. It was a bit chilly, but I got some awesome photos without throngs of tourists in the background.

This is the must see attraction in Athens, it is impressive but unfortunately there is alot maintenance work going on which spoils any photographs. I am not sure I would want to be walking up there in the summer sun, and it looks like you can't take drinks up there with you because a guide told someone to put it... More

Despite visiting Athens frequently and walking around the Acropolis I had never been in. Did this time and glad I did. Its one of those 'must see' things to do. I would go in on future visits too. Some restored parts are looking out of place but Im sure these will soon be made to match other colours etc

Like millions of other we were blown away by the location and the sheer task of building all this thousands of years ago. A must visit and a good walk
