Full description

Take the chance to visit the Acropolis, the most famous monument of ancient Greece. Receive your ticket to your e-mail along with instructions to download your audio tour and go directly to the South Entrance, close to the Acropolis metro station.

Scan your ticket at the ticket-validating machines, put on your headphones and listen to our professional, licensed guides, and experts on storytelling present you with historical information and narrate original handpicked stories, while you walk uphill and explore the unique landmark.

Take as much time as you need. The Acropolis is an archaeological wonder, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the most instantly recognizable landmarks of Athens. Walk into the Theater of Dionysus and see the UNESCO-listed impressive Parthenon Temple which is dedicated to Athena, the goddess of war. Visit the Propylaea, the temple of Athena Nike, Erechtheion and see the Odeon of Herodes Atticus from the top. You can walk to all sides of the hill and awe at the marvelous views of Athens, the surrounding mountains and of course the Aegean Sea. Towering over the capital, Acropolis is a very impressive sight, and walking around on its grounds, gives the visitor a feeling of awe and a true sense of the greatness of the ancient Greeks.

The audio guide wasn't great. It kept fritzing out, but I enjoy reading the informational kiosks anyway so it was no big deal. It was great skipping the line for tickets, and the tickets worked flawlessly at the entrance. (We've had problems with tickets bought on line needing to be exchanged at the venue before they worked at the entrance. Not the case here.) We had a great time at the Acropolis.

The digital ticket works perfectly and you don't have to wait in line (the queues at the ticket offices are already very long). It's a pity that you can't get the free tickets for children online in advance. We therefore booked an adult ticket for our daughter so that we do not have to queue. Unfortunately, the audio guide is very lengthy, so it makes little sense to use it with children.

Using the south entrance is the way to go. Arrive as early as possible as large crowds gather quickly. The audio guide is a bit flawed. If you pause then it always resets to the start of the tour no matter where you are. The English version was difficult to understand.
