The Acropolis ticket may be bought from a little kiosk once you have climbed to the top of the slope. It can either cost EUR 6 (access to the Acropolis only) or EUR 12 (access to five other sites, see below) per person.
The other sites included in the ticket are:
(1) Theater of Dionisyus
(2) Ancient Cemetry of Kerameikos
(3) Athenian (Ancient) Agora
(4) Roman Agora and Tower of the Winds (Horologion of Andronicus)
(5) Olympeion (Temple of Olympian Zeus)
I would suggest, of course, the full ticket. Over and above that, I recommend visiting all of the other sites, but having to rate them I would say that (5) and (3) are absolutely UNMISSABLE, (4) should only be missed in case of an emergency or something, (1) is to be seen with a quick pace - but still be seen, and (2) may be missed for a good reason. But do make it a point to see the Olympeion and Athenian Agora!
The actual ticket is a compound of 6 coupons, out of which one will be torn at each site you visit (the first one naturally being the Acropolis). I have read numerous reviews regarding the timespan you have available to see all sites. I was told at the Acropolis that I could use teh tickets throughout all season (Summer).
Since other sources offered conflicting information, check when you buy your ticket. But you should be able to comfortably see everything in 3 or 4 days!
Of course walking by that...
Of course walking by that streets of Paka, being in front of Acropolis, it s just great. But better than that was visiting Mykonos. A place made in other planet. People with good mood, a perfect environment...There s a pic of Mykonos and me besides!!
Temple of Posseidon
Temple of Posseidon
Cape Sounion is surrounded with the romantic Aegean Sea, decorated by the spectacular Temple of Posseidon (the god of the sea) standing on a craggy spur that plunges 65m to the sea.
The overlooking from the Aegean Sea is definitely impressive and it's the best place to see the magnificent sunset over the sea as well.
If you are hungry, and have little money, head to Plaka! No, I'm not sending you to a restaurant, and you won't have a 3 course meal (heck you won't even have a fork or spoon). But, the place I am sending you has the best damn gyros ever! AND, this is a big "AND", they are for 1 Euro!!
Its my most prized Athens meal memory! Two gyros and a Fanta for 3 Euro! I always ended up needing to go change my short afterwards, because they stuff the gyros so full that I always ended up dripping some on myself! I can't tell you the name of the place, only give you exact directions!
Directions: Start as if you were walking out of the Monastiraki Station and were going to walk down Ermou St. When you get to the corner, there is an Everest fast food store. Take a right and walk maybe 5-10 feet and you will see the gyro stand in front of the restaurant!!
If you sit down to enjoy your gyro, it will cost you, literally, 3 times as much. Just grab your gyro-to-go, and go sit on the concrete steps back toward the station, which affords great views of the Acropolis! Oh MAN, I want one of those gyros!!
Ancient Agora The Agora (market) was Athens' meeting place in ancient times. But it's a disappointing place for tourists, though Socrates spent a lot of time here expounding his philosophy. Except Temple of Hephaestus, there's almost nothing to see.
