The Acropolis is one of the best sites in all of Athens Greece. My wife and I had the pleasure of recently visiting some friends who live in Athens, and they took us on a tour of the Acropolis.
I would suggest you stop by the museum before you head up to the ruins.
The structure was constructed around 430- 440 B.C. On clear days it makes a wonderful picture. Our day had some overcast.
The museum can be sen from the Acropolis. It has been open since 2009. Many of the artifacts that are found at the Acropolis are placed inside the walls of the museum and are restored.
They use the latest lazer technology while working on the samples. There have demonstration for the public, along with a gift shop and cafe. The prices are reasonable. We had a turkey and cheese sandwich.
Most of Athens has graffiti all over the place. But the Acropolis is pretty clean of graffiti.
A must see if you are ever in Athens.

What a beautiful piece of history you and your wife were privileged to be able to visit! It is always a shame to hear that time and vandals take over such beauty, I guess it is everywhere, and the lack of respect our culture has. I have a CD of Yanni...live at the acropolis a wonderful CD, and it was all lit up and filled with an audience. Quite beautiful. Ever hear of that artist? I hope too, you were able to enjoy the many flavors of Greek foods!! I would have looked forward to that...not that I am overweight....I just love ethnic foods, and that would have been the first hit on my list!! Enjoyed! www.sandysanderellasmusings.blogspot.com
That's nice they've kept it free a graffiti.
Awesome! Athens is one of the many places I hope to visit one day!
