  • Put on your non-slip shoes and skip-the-line to one of the world's most important architectural heritage sites, also known as the cradle of Western civilization
  • Uncover the history as you walk amongst amazing ruins - you'll take some great photos!
  • See the Parthenon - the most imitated building in the world

Time is precious, something the Acropolis has seen a lot of. Skip the line to this ancient Greek wonder, see the Parthenon - the most famous ancient Greek temple ever built, dedicated to Athena, the goddess of war - and get amazing views of Athens from the rocky outcrop.

The Acropolis has been studied for centuries and, still, no one's entirely sure how they did it! Try to figure it out for yourself as you skip the line and head for a solo exploration of the very cradle of Western civilization.

Marvel at the Parthenon, feel your jaw drop in the Dionysus Theater and enjoy the serene silence of the Sanctuary.

Check out the views from the rocky precipice and be sure to wear non-slip shoes! The 5th century BC surroundings weren't designed for high heels.

This worked beautifully. Was perfect. We went straight through the turnstiles without queueing. The ticket collection office is very near the acropolis so it’s not out of the way at all. Perfect buy.

Brilliant experience but in winter months it is quiet enough to buy the ticket at the site.

Pretty easy to book and pay.
Skipping the line is most definitely worth the small extra cost.

A must to see in Athens! Skip the line was simple and quick entry. We did convert our electronic ticket to paper at the place
mentioned on the Tiqets site and that was a very quick process. One suggestion is to go for 8:00 am and have sometime at the Acropolis before the MASS of tour groups arrive (8:30ish).our first 45 min were our best! Enjoy

It was confusing finding the ticket office at 6 on the map but luckily someone noticed us carrying a yellow map. So the office was a guy with a yellow tie! He gave us the tickets and we were on our way but we could have spent a very long g time looking for this “office”
