“Very impressive !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Yes, we all have seen the images or videos of this site but being there is totally different. Please make sure you visit this site when you go to Athens. The climb may be a bit difficult to people with limited mobility but if you are in moderately fit shape
it is a breeze. The views of Athens are spectacular. We did go very early in the morning before the groups started to come in which made it a very pleasant experience. It would be advisable to read up on each of the monuments beforehand, it makes the experience more meaningful.

“Acropolis, Athens, Greece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I had no idea how dominating this attraction was to the city of Athens. Without question one of the most awe inspiring attractions in the world. Worth a top notch guide like Yota who can share Greek history & culture while there.

“Should be very hot in summer...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

This a must visit place in Athens for sure but all these scaffolding, mobilization buildings and cranes ruin the ambiance. I hope all will be gone soon. We were very lucky that we were there at the beginning of May. I believe climbing to the hill won't be a pleasant experience at mid summer.

“Speechless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Every time a visit Acropolis i feel blessed i am staying so close to this miracle.
I do not know can find words to describe how proud i am to be able to stare this wonder and walk through Thision and Monastiraki almost everyday.
I hope for everybody to be able to visit it someday...
