2.500 years old and instead of inspiring respect and awe, it suffers from the diseases of the modern society .The "Power complex" and hunger for money was noticeable throughout our visit. From the tickets entrance where they pushed us to buy the complete ticket for 30 Euros instead of the simple of 10, to the guards of the Parthenon that won’t let you touch the marbles but won’t hesitate to jump like monkeys on them with their shoes.
my wife and I are elderly so the climb was tough on the top the surface was partly irregular stone that was difficult to navigate there is a rest room at the top if this is a bucket list item for you, be careful... the first time we booked a tour the government site guards were on strike so this and all the sites were closed! it was good for us though, we never could have kept up with a tour group
Really could this be less than 5 stars? It's the inspiration for an entire Architectural movement! You MUST visit if in Athens.
The first thing you should do when visiting Athens. Spectacular view of the city, magnificent monument, great history and ancient architecture. Timemark of modern civilization..
