Great not only because of the monumental buildings but also because of the view from the hill over the city of Athens.
Truly remarkable experience.
Go early morning because gets very crowdy during the day!

Exceeded expectations!
Top tips: Early is better, cooler and not so busy.
Wear a hat and sunglasses - even in 22C and sunny, it felt very hot, there is little shade at the top.
Take water, there are no refreshments at the top.
Wear shoes with a good grip, it can be slippery on the rocks on the climb up and at the top.

Amazing to visit, allow 2 to 3 hours minimum.

The best way up is to take the pedestrian road - Apostolou Pavlov. See all the sights and then go to the Acropolis museum afterwards. This way, all the things in the museum will make more sense and you can gather more info on all the monuments you have just seen. Also, go early to beat the crowds and I mean early - just as it opens. This makes such a difference. The atmosphere is wonderful when you have it all almost to yourself!

Such a great feel it is to be at this place. Excellent audio guide adds so much value to the ticket price. Don't miss the musium part and running on track.

History lovers would love this place. Go at opening times to avoid huge crowds and as it has lots of walking involved go with proper shoes.
