Definitely take a tour. It made our visit come alive. While just looking at the enormity and beauty of the Acropolis is awe inspiring, the history is so very important to understand how important the Acropolis is to Greek history.

I've read and seen photos for years but they do not compare to standing among these ancient ruins. Absolutely breathtaking. Bucket List item checked off!

This is part of the complex of the Parthenon. It consist of some of the other buildings and an arena. With your admission you also gain admission to two sites outside of the complex.

I've never been much of a historian but the Acropolis inspired me to learn more about ancient Greece. More importantly, seeing Areopagus where the Apostle Paul spoke to the Athenians inspired me to read the Bible!

This ancient site is amazing and loaded with so much history. We only had about six hours total to spend in Athens (heading to a wedding on the island of Chios) but were so glad we spent two of those hours at the Acropolis.

Our visit was part of a four-hour tour provided by George's Taxi. Highly recommend that company for any amount of sight-seeing in Athens!

A must do when in Athens!!
Absolutely worth the visit.
The only advice that I have is to go early to beat the crowds as I went around noon with a tour group and it was packed!!

Beautiful from a distance, breathtaking up close. Easy to access from close to the Akropoli tube station and a must-see attraction.
Definitely recommend visiting late afternoon into the evening to avoid the heat and enjoy the views and photos in the varying light.

Go early and use entrance near museum for drastically shorter lines. Also, you can buy your ticket ahead of time through the website.

The perfection of the Greek architecture, I can even imagine how they built this place without any machinery.
Proud to have seen this miracle…

Worth the walk up. Wear decent shoes, the marble steps are slippery and the climb is quite steel at times.

Too many dogs! The moment we got down from the bus , the dogs are barking at us, following us wherever we go. Very traumatic experience for me.
