It's definitely much weaker than any site in Italy and France in presentation and even in right history.

If you only have time for one place to visit in Athens this should be it. On the way up the hill you pass several layers of history and monuments. Once on top the view and the sense of history is just awesome. You can see all other important sites from up there.

Allow 3 hours to visit leisurely. I suggest you visit the museum and watch the video before in order to understand the history of the Parthenon and Erecthion better.

It was really an amazing attraction with picturesque ruins and beautiful views to the city. Better to come in the morning especially during the summer time to avoid crowds and the sun heat.

I recommend to go to the acropolis museum before so you can understand what the acropolis is about when you see it otherwise it just looks like any other ancient ruin.After a short film I saw at the acropolis museum I much appreciated the acropolis while at the site.It is well worth the effort to go there.

Acropolis and the ancient ruins on it, are beautiful and have a lot of history to offer. The price is 20€ in the summertime and in the wintertime it gets to 10€ if I am not mistaken. If you love ancient Greece and it's culture, its worth a visit. I, as a Greek, never get bored of such greatness. Now... More

Visit the Acropolis Museum first and watch the videos there to get a better understanding of the history...then allow yourself 2-3 hours to explore the Acropolis and Mars Hill. Wear comfortable shoes with good traction for the many marble steps, then get ready for panoramic views of Athens and magnificent monuments!
