I think the Acropolis was the main highlight of our trip to Athens. IT surely makes you wonder how such things were constructed and build thousands of year ago. Definitely a must for history lovers

The main ruins are being restored, so the odeon and stadium are in very good shape. The temple, above the stadium and odeon is a remnant of a few columns, but interesting for its age. Wandering around the area reveals remains of other foundations, and there are water caverns about 1/2mile north of the temple ruins near an absolutely beautiful... More

This ancient site has no entrance fee, no merchandising . . . not even any toilets: it's thus less promoted and less busy, giving you chance to explore in peace. Whilst the temple and amphitheatre are worth a look, it's the stadium that so impressed us we had to go back a few days later. Sit in the 'stands' and... More

This review is for the Acropolis and the theatre, I will review the stadium separately. We enjoyed exploring the Acropolis in our own free time as this is a free attraction open all hours. The acropolis dates back to 200-300bc but restoration work was completed by the Italians during their occupation in the early 1900s with the theatre completely restored... More

Easy 30 minute walk from the Old Town, or take one of the guided tours. Not that long ago you could explore everywhere but now things are fenced off as off limits to be viewed from afar, and the temple itself is covered in scaffolding. The stadium is large and the area is barren. For a peaceful escape this is... More

We walked from the old town and just asked people the way, it was a bit of a trek ( 25 mins) but seems more when your lost. He place is very desolate and the acropolis itself is covered in scaffolding but you can still get an idea of what went on. The theatre is there and it's all very... More

Amazing place to visit, but not suitable for small kids! There are a lots of stairs and not really any safety barriers.

It is being refurbished. The scaffolding takes away from the experience of being there. The amphitheater is nothing special.

We took a taxi up 5 euros and because we can see the harbour we walked down the hillside towards it . the Stadium is much bigger than I had anticipated, but sadly the acropolis is incased in scaffolding for repairs to be done so it was hard to see it properly. We are hoping next time we go back... More

AFTER SPENDING 15minutes to try to find out where the Acropolis is ,we finally found it using the internet search engine.It is located on the way to the rhodos hospital up on the hill. Found a dirt parking place ,entered in something like a park ,walked some walls and ended up on the top of this place where there were... More
