Great experience, it was amazing to be in contacto with the past, you feel that at Acropolis. It was very hot, try to avoid before and after lunch hour, there is no place where you can hide from the sun.

It’s ruins, but the scale of Parthenon and the views all around are magnificent and incredible. Tip: Come after 5pm to get in practically with no lines.
