    If you're going to only one site besides the Acropolis, let this be it. Nice buildings and great museum

    What a place! The temple is very well reserved and the walk inside the area is amazing. Don't miss it especially a sunny day!

    Sem palavras. Estar em um parque histórico com um templo grego de 2500 anos, é absurdamente demais

    Περίπατος κ ηρεμία σε επαφή με την αρχαία Αθήνα και τη φύση. Ειδικά νωρίς το πρωί που δεν πέφτεις πάνω στην πολυκοσμία είναι απόλαυση!

    Walking distance from Acropolis, takes 10min to walk down. So impressive and very ancient. There are many spots to visit; do not miss the Library.

    Nice view of Acropolis from downtown. The same walk-through problem with Archeological Museum. Buy the 30€ package that covers all historic monument visits.

    You should visit the museum before the site itself. With an overview from the museum, it will be more significant to look around...

    The centre of the ancient city. Ancient Agora was the political and cultural cradle of Athenian citizens.

    Walk around the museum before walking around the site. It gives a more helpful overview of what you are seeing
