    Visiting Greece was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and the history and magnificence of the Acropolis & the Parthenon were without comparison. Standing at the top of the Acropolis, there is a 360 degree view of Athens, the Mediterranean, and more history than you can imagine. I was amazed and in awe.

    Athens is my favorite place on earth and the Acropolis just embodies the spirit of ancient Athens. It may be under construction, but with a little imagination and a decent enough tour guide, it can be an amazing experience. The view from up there is amazing and the museum is great. Try sitting on the Areopagus on a sunny day, looking down on the agora. Great pics and just a wonderful atmosphere. Also, for the best pictures of the Acropolis, go up Philopappou hill nearby.

    We visited the acropolis the first of Oct. this year. I was surprised how much you had to climb to get to the top up a marble pathway . Although I am used to hiking and it was no problem I noticed one lady of 70 (a guess) could not continue up to the top with our guide and had to stop halfway. A cane for support might help some older people. We went with Chat tours and our guide was a professor who had taught at the univerisity of Athens for some 20 years and worked as a guide part time. She spoke many languages clearly and fluently and could answer any question we had. We really enjoyed our visit and it was very worth while. You really are in awe of what the ancient people could accomplish. The view looking down from the acropolis was amazing as well.

    I think I read most of—if not all of—Mary Renault’s books on Greece, and in 1995, went there, to Athens, and a few islands thereabouts. But I spent most of my time around the Acropolis; I think I fell in love with its image. I’d sit down at a café at night, in the surrounding area, the lights would go on around the Acropolis, at twilight, and I’d gaze at it. It was a warm jewel to my eyes. It was the Parthenon that seemed to grab my attention the most, although the full image of the Acropolis at night is magnificent, and it is on my top ten lists. To my understanding, it was inhabited, the citadel area [the hill it is on], 5000-years ago.

    It was considered a walled citadel at one time, then the gods took over, and it became a temple of sorts; or temples, I should say. Pericles ordered a temple erected in honor of his patron goddess, Athena, and thus, a marble temple came about. I do like the Athena coins also, of 449 BC, they are beautiful, and were made to support the war effort in Athens. But as we all know the Christians and Muslims conquered, Greece and used the buildings on the Acropolis for their own liking. And the Turks used it for target practice; and the British stolid a lot of the sculptures, now in the British Museum, which I’ve seen. But as I understand the quest goes on to bring them back, and to restore its beauty.

    Incidentally, the food is great also, I just can’t remember what I ate, but whatever it was I never complained, so it must had been good. Would I go back, yup: to see the Acropolis again, and Crete.

    This has to be one of the most beautiful spots in all of Athens. Ever since I was there a few years ago I have wanted to go back. This is a must see spot if you are visiting Athens.
