Well worth the climb and wandering around the ruins but be careful the marble rock its built on is very polished and slippery.
Buy your multi-site ticket at the Agora as the queue at the Acropolis was huge

I think it’s fair to say that the Acropolis is one of the most iconic tourist highlights in Europe and maybe even in the world. The entrance fee (€20) is certainly worth it. I would recommend bringing some water as the site itself doesn’t offer any refreshments (other than outside of the gate). Other than that, enjoy and marvel at the beauty of Ancient Greece.

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.

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.
