Great to see such history up close! I went early in the morning (8:30am), and the line-up moved quickly - only about a 5 min wait. Two hours to see it all. When exiting about 10:45am, I saw that the line-up reached the main street level - go early. Beautiful views and breathtaking history! Easy to plan for this in advance - simplified my entry.

Great experience. History abounds in Athens and the Acropolis is a must see. The access was easy, straight through the gate and the audio worked really well. Downloading it to your phone meant crystal clear and easy listening. You could spend as much time as you like just taking it all in, perfect. Even though there are people everywhere on the Acropolis, with a little patience you can get some private pictures up close with the ancient ruins. Amazing. I got some really nice photos of my wife with her ' own Parthenon. It just makes the experience a little more personal.

Worth it to skip the entry line for the acropolis. Tickets come straight to your phone, and you can have them ready and avoid the ticket line. We arrived at 7:45am and were among the first to enter. Advice: go straight to the top when you arrive. For 15 minutes, you will have the place to yourself! After that, the crowd arrives.
