It is more imposing in reality than it looks in the pictures. Just amazing to think that people in such ancient times were so advanced technologically that they could construct such an imposing structure so high up a hill. Good education for kids.

What a treat to be here with all the history. Important that they continue to make sure that the renovations continue so that this historic landmark is preserved for other generations

An amazingly harmonical, technologically perfect construction that was built 2.500 years ago!!! It is so perfect that I would say we are talking about a magical piece of art!!! Get a knowledgeable tourist guide to explain you everything about it, and you will be astonished!!!...More

As to be expected a very crowded place (even outside of high season) but not to be missed. Do it with a guide otherwise you miss out on so much important information.

You will approach the Parthenon as the ancient Athenians did. First you will see it from below. Then you climb up the stairs, walk through the monumental gate (propylaea), and see the the Parthenon’s back, northwestern corner. You need to walk around to get to...More

We visited the Acropolis (whole mountain) with its many astonishingly beautiful temples including the Parthenon and were simply taken away by the utter size and beauty of the creations. If I’m Athens, you definitely need to visit the Acropolis but do it early at 8am...More

€20 or €30 for a combined ticket, where you can also visit Hadrian’s Library, Temple of Olympian Zeus, The Ancient Agora of Athens and a couple more. Hope this helps.
