    The ancient Greek temples rises above the centre of the city. Ascend through the olive groves of the lower slopes to reach the marble crown, before passing through the Propylaia gateway. Read more

    Definitely comfy shoes and not during high noon/afternoon in summer. But that also means less crowd...

    The site is not really big, a couple of hours max. If you'd like to see all the ancient monuments of the city buy the 12€ tickets package, totally worth it!

    Don't buy any overpriced drinks at the kiosk/shop in front of the ticket office, you are only allowed inside the ruins with a bottle of water

    The climb will leave you huffing, so wear the shoes you would for hiking. As is true for all major historic sites, you will not be alone. The sweeping views and the history make it all worth it, tho.

    It is the most important site of the city. Ancient Greek civilization was represented in an ideal way on the hill and some of the architectural masterpieces of the period were erected on its ground.

    Since 1987 UNESCO World Heritage, the Acropolis is a place where probably Europe was founded. The view over the city is breathtaking, we enjoyed every second on this historical place.

    Summary: Some crazy people put a lot of stones on top of each other a few thousand years ago and other crazy people demolished it. Now, some new crazy people are trying to put it back together.

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