Il Partenone e tutta l'acropoli non ha certo bisogno di pubblicità ulteriore. È stata un'esperienza unica. Non abbiamo utilizzato l'audio guida opzionale.

I don't think it's entirely clear that tickets are required for children outwith the EU. I thought I had purchased the correct ticket package for myself, husband and two children. However when we arrived at the acropolis the entrance staff said we required tickets for my children which I would've purchased had I known they were required. The staff were incredibly helpful when we arrived at the venue, so it all worked out but could've been a bit of a disappointment if they weren't so understanding.

Convenient and straight forward ticketing process. Acropolis was awesome. Worth the visit. I do recommend the earlier the better due to the heat.

Really. I did not like much about the guide. The user experience is terrible- doesn't flow, jumps about in content, gives no indication where to move to next, randomly starts and stops narrative - in all, terrible. The content is average

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.
