Visited the Acropolis and the views over Athens were incredible! The Acropolis holds so much history and definitely recommend visiting. I got the universal pass the visit all the ruins for 30€ as entry to the Acropolis is 20€ alone.

Another must see attraction, but try and go up early in the morning to avoid the coaches and heat. Some of the tour guides hog the main viewing areas, so you may need to use your elbows!

What can you say about walking on ancient history that we learned about in grade school? Absolutely fantastic. Yes, it is a clumb and worth every step. Make to get a guide so you get all the info about construction, uses, history, etc.
