Should I take a guided tour or do you recommend just going up on my own?

Go up on your own, and take a cold bottle of water if you'll be there in the summer. It gets hot as hell up there.

I agree! Going on your own to see the Acropolis, rather than a guided tour is so much better (going at your own pace) and water is needed too!

I used to promote Delos Excursions in Mykonos,and sometimes we had affluent, private clients who wanted exclusive use of the Delos island and private guided viewing, Acropolis is majestic,way too long and much more interesting and historical,if you can find a private guide this would be the best way, early morning say at 7am.... Just reminded me of Angkor Wat here next door in Siem Reap,Cambodia,we hired a private guide for 3 days because that's how long it really takes to enjoy this magnificent archeological site,[I could have spent 1 week].....we were so fortunate to see some monks from a temple I know very well on a pilgrimage chanting Buddhist prayers which I know......the acoustics were Unbelievable...... wouldn't you be lucky if there was
classical Greek music being played there..!?[In August there is a panigiri in Delos..complimentary transfer and wine and Mezedes....and classical music...heaven on earth in the summer ❤️❤️👌....Had I been there I would certainly put you in touch with the most professional tour guides.... Enjoy it either way, take lots of water and a picnic with you, just sit there and take it all in and imagine what Acropolis was really like all those years ago....if you have time go to Zunio....or spelt Sounion.....the second mini Acropolis......I just looked it up..
Just imagine a guided tour whole day.... time to relax and musical odyssey❤️❤️... Kalley Mera from Thailand and monsoons beginning..

Hahaha good point. Maybe not everything should be planned. Go the Greek way and just wander around

I have done it both ways, and I preferred the tour, at least for the first time. It is nice to get an overview of the history before venturing on my own.

Youve never seen Athens like this before

Athens is the most stunning city in the world. Never has there been a city that blends Ancient ruins and modern architecture so beautifully. This drone only captures parts of how beautiful this city is. If you're visiting Athens, I recommend that you take your time and explore all parts of the city, both ancient ruins and modern nightlife. Some of the must see places are the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum of course, and having a coffee at the museum cafe where you will have an excellent view of the acropolis.

Cape Sounion is a beautiful destination near Athens

Cape Sounion is a beach that is south of Athens, known for its beautiful hotels and luxury restaurants. I've attended so many weddings in the area, as it is one of the most popular destinations for families that live in the Athens or mainland area. One of the best parts of the area is that you can catch a great view of the Temple of Poseidon, here is what it looks like:

Where can I watch live bouzouki music in Athens?

What are some great spots to listen to traditional Greek music in downtown Athens? I love bouzouki especially, and would love to see some talented musicians performing it live. Have any of you been to any rebetathika or restaurants with live music that would have some performances to listen to? Thanks everyone!

Tips on getting a good deal while shopping in Athens

One important thing to know while shopping in Athens, especially at the tourist places is that no price is the final price! When shopping, it is not considered rude to barter and negotiate prices (politely). I recommend doing this especially if you are purchasing a few items or paying with cash. Usually, the shop owner will give you a lower price if you are buying more things. Remember to always be polite when bartering and know that you shouldn't go too low, people should still be paid fairly.
