You can't take a baby stroller up. So in 33 degrees if you have to carry a toddler In your arm you need to be prepared. The Parthenon at top and views are worth it if you are into these sort of things

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

We paid for a multi-ticket for all the main attractions but I think just the museum was only 5 Euro.
