Impressive and nice to see. Open to sun, with no shade, so be prepared. Crowded, but worthwhile. Glad I didn't have to help build it.

A must see. Might be the building that most symbolises the rejuvenating classical period, setting a new standard for the ancient Greeks, and for the whole western world.

Walking around such a well-known building, it is incredible to think that it was built 2500 years ago, that it has been a Greek temple, a church, a mosque, and a gun-powder store, as well as an iconic sight of Athens.

Try to book tickets on line to avoid the queues of people swarming to see 14 or so pillars still standing up. Then ask yourself the question Was it worth 20 euros. No. Only go if you must. Not worth it.

Always dreamed of seeing the Parthenon! The walk up is not too bad because there are some landings to rest on. We went around 4 pm to avoid the high heat. Well worth the trip. The Parthenon and Temple of Athena are beautiful. Wear non-slip...More
