    Hot, slippery, full of tourists. But it's an obligated visit when first time in Athens. Lots of history. Always pay for a guided tour.

    It's the Acropolis. It's big. It's old. It's got history. It's amazing. Go to the Acropolis museum afterwards to get the full story.

    It's cool, but knowing most of the surviving architectural details now reside in the Acropolis Museum makes it less cool.

    A "must do" but €20 for entry ticket is a bit steep
  • Kat W.
    This is a must see place in Athens. Beautiful ruins, but the view from the top alone is worth the money. It's very slippery though, so wear good flat shoes!
  • Daniel G.
    Hold the hand rails. Ancient marble steps are VERY slippery.

    It's useless to compare it with Ephesus. Just enjoy

    If you weren't a misanthropist when you arrived, you will be by the time you leave. It's obscenely crowded, most ruins are either fenced off or under renovation, and did I mention it's crowded?

    Amazingly beautiful, a-must-see attraction with beautiful history and city view. Don't forget water, long sleeves and. Avoid flipflops, instead have sneakers or hiking shoes. Avoid slippery marbles.

    Amazing and inspiring world class historic site. Make sure to also visit the south flank site with the theatre of Dionysus (separate entrance) and the nearby Pnyx hill where democracy was born.

    One of the most amazing sites in the world. Often overlooked nearby are the south flank of the Acropolis (separate entrance) and the nearby Pnyx hill where democracy was born.

    The parthenon was largely destroyed on 26 September 1687 after a Venetian bombardment exploded a nearby Ottoman mmunition dump.

    Sacred Rock of Athens! Acropolis comes from Greek words "akron" (edge) + "polis" (city). Also UNESCO World Heritage Site.
