Parthenon, Athens Reviews - Write a Review
Even though it is a great place, looks like some part of it is always under maintenance. This takes away a little bit of fun. Having said that standing on top of Acropolis hill next to Parthenon is a fantastic feeling. Before heading towards the hill I strongly suggest to visit the museum first. That museum kick-starts your imagination. Also it may be a nice idea to cover all other monuments nearby Acropolis hill in Athens before visiting Parthenon. From every place you can see Parthenon.
We had a pretty special experience here. Lived in Greece for 6 months. Athens was the hub. One of our archeology professors made some amazing discoveries regarding the Athena Nike Temple. After his discoveries we're published, he became a star amongst the archeologists and engineers in the area. In this picture, we were inside the Parthenon, discussing the rebuild taking place. The engineer is explaining to us how unbelievable the ancients were when it came to construction.
Went to the Parthenon on my honeymoon. It was amazing and had a great view of the city. It will he hot and there is no shade so wear a hat. Very touristy so make sure to go early. 20 Euro a person but it goes to more restoration. Remember to go see the new museum as it adds to the history.
Incredible historic site. I visited in May 2015 while there was work being done but it was still great. The views are incredible. Gets very very busy so get there as early as possible. Bring a student ID for discounted tickets. It took us a while to find an entrance to the park/trails so make sure to review that before leaving wifi.
Awesome. Amazing. Beautiful sights. Very crowded. No matter where you go to take a picture, there are always people in it. Currently in renovations.
