Why to visit Acropolis of Athens

The Acropolis is the flagship attraction of ancient Athens, an archaeological wonder, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and one of the world's most instantly recognisable sights. The remains, which date back to 510 BC and are positioned on a steep clifftop—the so-called sacred rock of Athens—overlook the current city.I

It was a home of Greek kings, a fortress, a religious centre, and a sacred place for ancient Athenians. It is located atop a limestone hill above Athens. The Parthenon, Propylaea, Temple of Athena Nike, Erechtheion, and Statue of Athena Promachos are among the ancient structures that have been preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The cost of a ticket at this location is € 20 (approx).

Special Tip

Since the marble floors might be slippery, it is recommended that you wear proper footwear. A canteen is also located outside the ticket desk at the Acropolis' entrance. Note that you are only allowed to bring water into the archaeological site; no other drinks or food are permitted.
