The acropolis is insanely cool, but just ridiculous crowded. Between the annoying tourists and the Greek security guards whistling at anyone that does anything wrong, it is a chaotic scene. Throw in constant construction and you get something that begs to be done right. Nonetheless, it is a must stop for any traveler. It is where Western civilization began, and just down the steep rocky cliffs, is the location where it first began its decline.
