Every time we visit we love it

Children are never bored. We discover something new every time. Of course some uphill walking is necessary. Both children older than 5 years.

The ruins are under renovation, but they are still very impressive. Lots of tourists, but still a must-see attraction. The highlight of any visit to the Acropolis.

Go early to visit this remarkable site, it is in very good order considering just how old it is. Left us wondering how ever did they get the marble to build this enormous collection of temples and buildings up the very steep hill it is constructed on? It all came from hills in the far distance, our guide told us.... More

Amazing structures, just too bad there is so much machinery in front of the building. Overlooks the incredible city of Athens.

It is a great historic location and easy to reach with the available 'Citysightseeing bus' service, e.g. red bus. Our trip in February was particularly nice and relaxing because there were not too many tourists, the weather beautiful, and also people who are not fast walkers can really take their time and enjoy the ancient structures and scenery. Not to... More

While this is he main reason people Athens, don't make it your first stop. Go to the Acropolis Museum to get a better understanding of waht you will see. Go up first thing in the morning or last thing in the day. It can get very hot.

This is a must see while in Athens - a step back into very early history - the beginning of our contemporary civilization. Continue your trip to the Acropolis for another world wonder and then on to the Acropolis Museum where you will statues that have unearthed.

I suggest visiting the museum after instead of before, but read something about the Parthenon and the entire site before the hike. Even a basic read will make you appreciate the structures more.
