Visit the Acropolis, perhaps Greece's most important landmark and one of the world's most-visited sites. Book this skip-the-ticket-line ticket to avoid the long wait at the ticket office. Get the most out of the experience with an audio guide on your phone and uncover the history of the city.

Receive your e-ticket by email and check your voucher for instructions on how to download your audio guide. Then, with your phone and headphones in hand, go directly to the South Entrance, close to the Acropolis metro station, and scan your ticket at the ticket-validating machines.

Visit the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, Erechtheion, and see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.

Wander around all sides of the hill and get some marvelous views of the capital of Greece. See the surrounding mountains and the blue Aegean sea which surrounds Athens.

Very good audioguide, works well. You have to download the audio guide and bring your own headphones. There are 2 lines at the entrance to the acropolis, one to buy tickets (with this reservation you don't have to go to this line) and another to enter the acropolis (you have to go to this line which is long but goes fast). It's all very expensive nearby, take water from home. A lemonade costs 5 euros and then you can't even enter it with your hand. A small cereal bar 5 euros. I do not recommend buying food in the area.

Was definitely worth getting the audiobook, it was what I wanted and expected. Lots of big tour groups that would get a little in the way, but easy enough to dodge, just be aware that it’s part of the site. Wear decent footwear, take water and use the south entrance avoiding peak midday times.

We just wanted a skip the line ticket but it incorporated an audio tour but we could not download - but worked out fine - don’t really have to skip the line but buy your tickets on line always. Fantastic experience views amazing to get a full view of the city
