Amazing experience! No waiting time! The only problem that I could mention is that there was not sign of where those with online tickets should wait.

An amazing place to visit in person! You are overcome by the sheer history of Acropolis/the Parthenon! Especially, as an American who does not get to see ancient architecture like this ever. The timed system of getting in is a little confusing to tourists ar first, but once you figure it out, it is pretty smooth.

Strange result and a bit inconvenient for trip planning, not knowing the exact time of entry until the day before.

It was amazing! We got in line 15 minutes before the time of our ticket waiting a very short time and went right in! The Parthenon is unbelievable!

I really enjoyed and valued the ruins of the Parthenon, even with the crowds. However we were unable to visit the museum part of the ticket as it closed early due to the Easter celebration. I do believe that this information should have been given to purchasers at the time of buying the ticket. I had checked the museum times and on Google it hadn't listed early closing times but I am sure it would have been knowledge acailable to sites selling tickets.

Explore ancient Greek history

The Acropolis is a stunning Athenian temple complex located on a rocky outcrop above the city. Stop by the ruins of legendary structures like the Propylaea, the entrance to the ancient temple of Parthenon. Dedicated to Athena, the Parthenon’s main function was to shelter the monumental statue of Athena that was made by Pheidias out of gold and ivory.

Temples in the Acropolis

Wander across the once-sacred halls of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion. The Odeon of Herodes Atticus will leave you in awe. The large amphitheater was built in AD 161 by wealthy Roman Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife Regilla and is still used to this day for concerts and other events. You have the option to include a mobile audio guide in case you're looking to add some insights to your tour.
