It's a bit of an exhausting walk up so if one is very averse to physical effort, see the site from below itself. But for the rest it's worth the hike uphill. We kept on stopping for rest and that was a good decision so one saves some energy to enjoy site and city views when you reach the top.... More

Needless to say that this is a must in Athens. Take your time to appreciate the views over the city, the temples and the old theater. Also the way up the hill to the entrance, through small streets and old blue houses is very much worth it.

The only downside is the slippery marble floors. Why warn when you could improve the situation? Even the young people were complaining on a bright, dry day. Otherwise, this is the best place to visit to witness the past Greek glory. Nowhere else can compare with its sheer size, and perfect surroundings, together with the cleanliness and good organisation (apart... More

It is a must! It is under construction now. The Acropolis is the cradle of the European culture, you have to see it once in your life!

Visited the acropolis for the first time. It is under construction so kind of disappointing to see all the machinery in site and still try to take a nice picture. Spend to much money to view the site and see more machinery than the actual structure.

Well worth the climb. Good shoes recommend as it can be slippy in places. The view is spectacular. Take water on hot days as there are no provisions at the top.

We were lucky to be staying right by the entrance so were able to get an early start as the queues form later in the day. As it was not high season we got in for €10 each which was well worth it. Although it is on a hill we did not find the climb too arduous but it would... More

Amazing! Takes you back to the ancient times and yet you look up and around and you are in today. Excellent 360 view of Athens.

The Acropolis having lack of information about the place and it is history, many places are blocked, even you cannot touch the marbles getting inside those big buildings. It will be just like a visit to a historical place with lots of restriction. Too many walking involved with different levels.
