The Acropolis, Athens

When you come to Greece you must stop in Athens to see the Acropolis.  This can just take 1 day but I suggest at least 2 days a visit in the morning hours and a visit in the evening, I wouldn't suggest going in the middle of the day it's to hot, besides the best photos are taken in the AM and PM.  The ticket price is about 12 euros but this will also get you into some of the other ancient sites including the Ancient Agora (just below the Acropolis), the Roman Agora, Theatre of Dionysos, Kerameikos, Tower of the Winds and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the ticket is good for at least 48 hours and you can also get a 48 hour subway ticket.

Why go to the Acropolis?  The view is probably the best you will get of Athens because that is what the Acropolis is - an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city, affording it some of the best views of modern Athens.  Then there are all of the ancient buildings on top - Parthenon, Erechtheum, Temple of Athena Nike, there are over 20 buildings on top, plus the Theatre of Dionysos is just below.
