High above the beautiful city of Athens we finally made it to The Acropolis. It was much more than I ever imagined it to be. The postcards don’t do it any justice. Make sure you wear your most comfortable walking shoes. Plan to be the...More

All has been said about this amazing place. Get there early, still long waiting lines, get the €30 guided tour at the booth and skip the line, totally worth it.

The more you walk into the Acropolis and the more you imagine how Greeks were actually living centuries ago. It's a must to see and to discover

Visiting Athens it is a must see. It certainly does not disappoint. The ruins are stunning, but be warned it is by far the busiest site in Athens especially when the cruise passengers rock up. Well worth getting there as it opens at 8:00.

I’ve visited Acropolis at least 7 times and I just can’t get bored of it. Every time I visit Athens I always make time to climb there. You can get quite a view to the city. Favourite spot ever.

Was able to experience subjects only seen in history books. Was actually able to go the places where it actually took place. Only downside was a of the slippery marble sidewalks and stairs.

This really is a magnificent place that has to be seen. I didn’t realise how big the site was until we reached the top, expect lots of climbing. This is not for the immobile as you have to climb lots of steps and stones and...More

Amazing! Incredible what people created thousands of years ago and still stands today. I found it to be a very emotional visit! And then an American father so incredulously says to his sons, This compares to the Statue Of Liberty 🗽... WTF... OMG.. I looked...More
