What's a visit without a visit to the acropolis? Don't forget to visit the whole roman forum around it too...

One can not travel to Athens and not visiting this amazing historical place. So everyone most climb the hill and enjoy this monument area. Tickets are 20€, maybe too expensive for what you get: some more contextual information might be useful.

Amazing view to the Greek history. Such a classic structure. You can see entire Athens from the top of the Acropolis. Within the ticket you can also view the theatre of Dionysus.

Despite the price and the on-going renovation works, the emblem of democracy is worth a visit. I can only hope that I would see it fully rebuilt in my lifetime.

You can get the metro to the acropolis station which is beside the museum and then it is a short walk to the ticket office
