Definitely worth the time to walk around and either have a guide or use the headsets. It was something beyond belief. A part of history you will not believe, the intricacy of the work is unbelievable.

While this is a very busy site, it is well worth a visit for the history and the view. Don't miss it.

It’s a steep and strenuous walk up but very worth it. We visited in October so no crowds and the weather was very pleasant.

A true wonder of the world. If it's a hot day visit early and then enjoy a coffee at the Dionysos cafe/restaurant before heading to the Acropolis museum.

This is a place you need about couple of hours to enjoy.The view is marvellous. A lovely restaurant across.There is a functioning church at the bottom close to the place where the buses stop.

There is not much that can be said about the Acropolis that hasn't already been said. I believe everyone should see the Acropolis once in there lifetime. Make sure to enjoy the view at night as they light it up beautifully.
