You must visit the Acropolis Museum before visiting the Acropolis itself. The history and the making of the acropolis is given in such detail. We spent 4 hrs in this museum, well worth it! Made visiting the Acropolis even better!

Give yourself a couple of hours to wander round taking in the statues and the story of the Acropolis. There is a lot to take in if you're taking yourself round. We did that and probably missed key parts, there were tours going round so...More

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

I am planning to visit the museum next week and saw that I could purchase tickets online. However it then said I would need to collect my pre-purchased tickets at the museum's ticket desk. Does that mean I still need to wait in line? If so, is there any advantage to pre-purchasing online>
