Full description

This is your chance to visit the Acropolis, the most famous monument of ancient Greece. Collect your ticket from the local partner's office close to the south entrance, skip the ticket lines and then go directly to the ticket-validating machines at the entrance. Walk uphill and explore the unique landmark at your own pace. You have as much time as you need. The Acropolis is an archaeological wonder, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the most instantly recognizable landmarks of Athens. Walk into the Theater of Dionysus and see the UNESCO-listed impressive Parthenon Temple which is dedicated to Athena, the goddess of war. Visit the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, Erechtheion and see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus from the top. You can walk to all sides of the hill and awe at the marvelous views of Athens, the surrounding mountains and of course the Aegean Sea. Towering over the capital, Acropolis is a very impressive sight, and walking around on its grounds, gives the visitor a feeling of awe and a true sense of the greatness of the ancient Greeks.

Simple and easy pickup of tickets with short walk to Acropolis entrance. The Acropolis was amazing. It was a super hot day and there isn’t much shade but the views are incredible. My 4 year old had trouble walking so my husband and I took turns holding him because a stroller is not allowed. I think it’s best to go either early morning or later in the afternoon

Pick up of our printed vouchers was easy and fast. Location was perfectly accurate, very close from the site. We went early in the morning, there were no lines at the gates, so skip-the-lines was not necessary but I still prefer having that peace of mind and not worrying about possible crowds.

This was my third visit to the acropolis and there is always something new to appreciate in the context of classical civilisation or ancient history studies. It is of course best appreciated by comparing with other ancient sites like Delphi and Olympia but is nonetheless absolutely worthy of visit in its own right.
