It's hard to take in all the feelings that overwhelm you standing in front of one of the absolute masterpieces of and in the world - all categories and through all times... What strikes you is that it has survived all the vandalism so well (it still stands!) through 2500 years of existance. Just see it. Most beautiful from the... More

Amazing place. An absolute must if you travel to Europe. Seeing the Parthenon makes me believe how geopolitics can change in the course of history.

Both Unique and remarkable place . When you visit Akropolis taking path that Greeks used to take three centuries BC the sensation is rare and intense. It is a demanding visit to those who love history like myself . Material mostly built in marble , Dyonisio Theater , Old Temple, cats everywhere and see the colossal Parthenon are part of... More

It is overpriced, for a place which you could spend not more than an hour. Also, it costs more for non-EU citizens to visit. Great views. Quick walking distance from the Plaka area, shops and restaurants.

Nice building and good explanations. Unfortunately the restoration equipment is placed in and around the building. Therefore you'll be challenged while taking pictures. I don't understand why they didn't remove the equipment they don't use.

It was our first time to Greece and this is a must see. It humbles you to see this type of old history.

Have been privileged to visit the Parthenon 6 times....restoration is definitely making progress!! Use some info to help you understand the size,shape, etc. for the building itself. A magnificent sight and site!! I love checking out the theaters from the height of the Acropolis...near the Parthenon.

A must when in Athens it is famous after all and who could resist this gem above the city and speaking of the city the views are amazing with nothing in your way and a sense of calm. There is a post office before you go up beside the ticket office and it's good to send family and friends a... More

Having visited many ancient Egyptian temples, didn't think I'll find the Parthenon impressive. But it certainly is unbelievably impressive! The history, site and views add up to quite a magical experience!

Not much to add to other revues except the following. The area at the top is very rough under foot. There are disappointingly few plaques or explanations as you go round. A lot of it currently has scaffolding over it .You definitely need a guide book and you wont be able to buy one anywhere once you have gone inside.... More
