Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit the Acropolis is in the morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds and the heat of the day. During the summer months, it can get quite hot, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes, and a hat and bring plenty of water with you. The Acropolis is usually open from 08:00 in the morning until 18:00 or 20:00 depending on the season. There is an elevator only for people with diminished abilities but you need to contact the site in advance.

What to Expect

Once you enter the Acropolis, you'll be greeted by stunning ancient ruins, including the Parthenon, the Propylaea, and the Erechtheion.

We recommend taking your time to explore the different areas and to enjoy the breathtaking views of Athens from the top.

Etiquette and Respect

When visiting the Acropolis, it's important to show respect for the site and its history. Please do not touch or climb on any of the ancient ruins or sculptures, as they are delicate and easily damaged. Additionally, dress modestly and refrain from smoking or littering in the area.
