It's a very straightforward experience. You book the ticket through this website and you get the tickets immediatly. Then you just show them at the gate. Saves time from queuing to buy the ticket. I suggest going at 8 am, not many people.

Purchasing tickets for the Acropolis was very simple. I just chose the date and the time, and used Apple Pay to handel the payment. Picking up my tickets by email on my phone and having them saved and available on my phone was really handy. Turning up at the gate and having the 3D codes scanned was simple!

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 blockbuster pop concerts and other events. You have the option to include a mobile audio guide in case you're looking to add a touch of education to your experience. This downloadable app is easy to use: all you have to do is download it before you reach the site, get your own earphones and plug them in to let the app guide you through the site. You'll learn interesting facts and old-time stories about this cherished landmark along the way.

Optional Access to the Acropolis Museum

Upgrade your tickets to enjoy access to the Acropolis Museum, located at the foot of the Acropolis. It is one of the most popular museums in the world with 4 galleries that showcase an extensive collection of Greek treasures unearthed by leading archaeologists. Trace and learn about the different periods of Athens and its Acropolis through all these artefacts in the exhibit. Listening to the multilingual audio guide gives you a deeper insight into the history and importance of all that you see in the museum.
