How much does it cost to visit the Parthenon?
The official ticket office for the Parthenon is below the main entrance to the Parthenon itself. During winter months queues at the Parthenon are not big, you will probably wait at most 20 to 30 minutes at busier times and on the weekends. During summer, it is another story – so follow these tips if you want to avoid the 2-hour plus queues.
This is also where you can purchase the special package ticket. But bear in mind that the special ticket is also on sale at the entrances to each of the participating archaeology sites. So in summer, if you want to avoid the queues at the Acropolis Ticket office, go to one of the other sites listed below (there are never long queues at these sites). Buy the special ticket there, you will pay the same price, ie. €30. You will then be able to enter that site and visit the Acropolis when it suits you, without having to wait in any queues. Once purchased, the multi-site ticket is valid for five days.

on €30. For a full list, see section five below.
the 4 ticket covers all other tourist areas, including Sant’Agata, Plaka, Monastiraki, and even the Acropolis itself. Just kidding- you only have to wait in that line to see all the way through Athens to see the Acropolis itself.
The lines are not that long in Parthenon.
How much does it cost to visit the Parthenon? Tickets cost 20€ which is only €10 more than the theatre! Plus, it is much cheaper to visit the Acropolis and the museum than to visit the Museum of the Unknown Age!
I have been to Athens merely twice. I write that with a frown on my face because it is a city I love so much that I could live there- but Greece has a disease called ‘Schengenitis’ that forces me to stay away from it.
My most recent trip to Greece was spent mostly in the islands (yea, I could live there too), but I had a bit of time in Athens and I decided to finally write a bit about the Acropolis since I have been asked on a few occasions for tips regarding visiting the Acropolis, one of the most
I hope this is helpful and provides you with useful information for your Acropolis visit. Feel free to leave a comment with suggestions, tips, or questions… or send me an email if there is more Acropolis information you’d like to know.
