A temple created to worship the 12 Gods of Greek mythology, a living proof of what the Ancient Greeks were capable to do more than 3.000 years ago. This is their legacy to the rest of the world as the founders of human civilisation and the fathers of Science, Medicine and Arts. Let us see what mankind was capable of... More

At the top of the Acropolis Hill is the most impressive building of Acropolis. The Ancient Temple Called PARTHENON is a miracle of architecture and sculpture. Perfect Geometry, amazing statues, secret illusions and a use of a perfect marble make you stuck seeing that! Is the symbol of the city of Athens (the whole of Acropolis Hill). Visiting Parthenon you... More

It is an amazing experience. You find yourself in the cradle of Western civilization. It's easy to access and safe. I went in July and it was very hot and VERY crowded. I'm not sure how to get around the crowd.

It is a trek to get to the top and see this amazing structure but totally worth it! Make sure you don't try and make this a quick stop. Take your time to see it from every vantage. We got the combo ticket at the lower part of the amphitheater and found that helpful. The line was shorter and we... More

History comes alive walking around and gazing at the ruins. You could just imagine the ancient people walking up the hill and make their offerings to the goddess Athena. This is what tourists go to Athens for and it does not disappoint.

If in Athens it's a must see along with all the other sights, gentle stroll on a fairly warm day. But do get up early quite

This is a must see! We hired a tour guide who helped show us around and so glad that we did. The views of the city were great. We got great photos! I would go back again because there was just so much history there.

It's hard to take in all the feelings that overwhelm you standing in front of one of the absolute masterpieces of and in the world - all categories and through all times... What strikes you is that it has survived all the vandalism so well (it still stands!) through 2500 years of existance. Just see it. Most beautiful from the... More

Amazing place. An absolute must if you travel to Europe. Seeing the Parthenon makes me believe how geopolitics can change in the course of history.

Both Unique and remarkable place . When you visit Akropolis taking path that Greeks used to take three centuries BC the sensation is rare and intense. It is a demanding visit to those who love history like myself . Material mostly built in marble , Dyonisio Theater , Old Temple, cats everywhere and see the colossal Parthenon are part of... More
