Acropolis of Athens

5.0 stars


The Acropolis

You can't go to Athens without visiting the Acropolis. I know it's the most well know tourist destination in Athens, but in my opinion, it's definitely worth a visit. I'm no architectural expert, but even I can appreciate what a momunental achievement it was to build this and it truly gives you a taste of what it was like in Ancient Greece. I find Greek history fascination so just walking round all the Acropolis' monuments is truly amazing. The Acropolis covers a huge area and dominates the skyline and the surrounding neighbourhoods and it is something that has inspired architects the world over. [more ]

Acropolis Museum

The Museum of Acropolis is definitely worth visiting. Don’t expect to feel the same atmosphere as when visiting the ruins, but you will definitely find out more about the ancient Greeks here. The museum mainly hosts sculptures from Acropolis, most of them being sculptures of the most important gods. The museum is rather old, but they are building a new one. The entrance fee is included in the ticket for the Acropolis and it costs 12 Euro. You can take photos inside the museum, but you can’t use the flash, as it damages the displayed items. A lovely museum that is worth the time. [more ]


Maybe as every tourist that visits Athens, right before leaving our bags with the friends we were visiting, we went to see the Acropolis. We were lucky to have arrived to Athens in the morning so we had the whole day to visit this famous monument. I must say I was really nervous about visiting the Acropolis. It’s an indescribable feeling to stand there and admire what has been built over 2400 years ago. The mystery, the tranquility and the spirituality of that place are very rare. Please do not forget to visit the Acropolis if you ever get to Greece. It really is wonderful and worth the visit and the respect for its builders, who made it one of the most famous and immortal constructions. [more ]
