Great view from the top of the Akropolis. Once on top, you can see the Areopagus (Mars Hill) and the Parthenon. Small cafe with poor sandwiches and drinks available there.

LOVE THE ACROPOLIS! In fact, I love everything about Athens! The people I have encountered have been so friendly, helpful and kind! Would love to go back someday!

Nothing compare to this ancient place. Visitors need first to know that almost thousands years back architects was make Parthenon and Acropolis all with marble. Fantastic and you can have all Athens city from the top.

Although it looks intimidating, the climb up to the Acropolis is not too hard. There are places to pause along the way, if you need to take a break. My husband and I are both in our late 60s and I have some problems with one of my ankles. Take it slowly if you need to and try to go on a day when it isn’t damp. The marble stones can be a bit slick. Once you get to the top, you’ll be glad you did it!

This has been on my bucket list since I was a kid! Mission accomplished.

It is one historic site worth the trip. You have to queue up to buy tickets (10 EUR for Adults).

You can see the Greek theatre of Dionysus and Roman Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the temple of Nike, The acropolis, the Parthenon, and the Areopagus hill where once Socrates stood and debated on various issues, where st. Paul gave his first sermon to the people of Greece and from where you can see the entire city of Athens and a beautiful sunset.

You need to carry with you water bottles and wear comfortable shoes and clothes as this is an uphill trek. I do not see any signs for accessible entry, please do check them before planning a trip there. Also, some of the stairs are made of marble and very slippery and could be very dangerous. You have to watch your steps when going up.

Also, check the opening hours. They open at 8 AM but closing hours varies according to season. In winter they close at 3 PM and in summer I think they close at 8 PM.

We visited in March 2018 and the weather was just perfect for an outdoor activity not too hot (20 degrees) with cool breeze at around mid-day, but I believe the temperatures go up during the summer months so you need loads of sunscreen.

Certain times of the days when the queue is long, you can buy your tickets at other attractions which would have smaller queues like the agoras or the Temple of Olympian Zeus but you still have to queue up to get your tickets validated.

However, it is worth doing it with the Acropolis museum (5 EUR) since they have moved the statues there and they do have interesting documentaries in the museum which is really good to co-relate the stuffs you will see in the museum and the Acropolis.
