I spent a good 2-3 hours at the Acropolis to get a true feeling for the different historical stages of the Acropolis. The museum also offers really nice views of the city.

Go immediately to the top floor for great views of the Acropolis, and you'll likely have the entire floor to yourself for 10 to 15 minutes. Most tourists are like herd animals. So if you want to avoid annoying groups who also arrive first thing...More

This museum is well organised with a lot of interesting original and replica pieces. The top floor is designed to look exactly like the Parthenon at the acropolis site. Turn left from the escalator and see the view before circling around.

This museum is definitely worth a visit while you are in Athens. If you can see it with a guide all the better. The books just don't live up to actually seeing the artifacts and history on display here. You can move through quickly or...More

After visiting the Acropolis, the museum should be the next one. They recently re-did part of the museum. It displays all the archaeological finds from the Acropolis. It will take hours to browse all all the exhibits, but the time is worth it.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

Suggest to go early. Get there by 08h45 and entry should be very quick. After 09h30 the crowds start.

Hi there. I didn't use public transport during my time in Athens. I believe there is a metro stop at the Acropolis. From memory, there was left luggage at the airport.
