Though you can see the Parthenon from just about anywhere in Athens, you want to see it up close. Pay for a guide to help you understand its significance and history, otherwise you are just looking at a pile of rocks.

An amazing sight that is worth spending time here. A bit of a climb to the top of Acropolis but many stops and water stops. So glad we made it here.

€20 or €30 for a combined ticket, where you can also visit Hadrian’s Library, Temple of Olympian Zeus, The Ancient Agora of Athens and a couple more. Hope this helps.
