Forget about the long lines, they move along fairly quickly and give you a chance to catch your breath as you work your way up the hill to the Parthenon. They are still working on the restoration, so expect some construction equipment around the main structure, but the good news is they are finished with the cleaning and the marble is beautiful.
We would recommend a tour guide to explain the history and the significance of the site, but that is not required. The structure is amazing and when you stop to think of when it was built, even more so. The views from the Acropolis are worth the price of admission and the Parthenon is breathtaking in its size and beauty.
Watch your footing, you are traveling over uneven ground most of the time and the marble stones on the pathways are worn so smooth as to be slick even when dry. We saw a couple of folks slip and go down and there is nowhere soft to land.
If you are up to the walk, which really isn't all that hard although there are a number of steps, you should make the effort.
