The Parthenon (top) is just as awesome to see as you might think this icon would be. It stands so tall and is an architectural wonder. The temple of Athena (bottom left) is beautiful. And there is one one olive tree on the top of the hill.
If you go, the entrance fee is 12€ and worth it. Allow 15 minutes to climb to the top, at least 45 minutes at the top, and another 15 minutes for the journey down. The paths are mostly marble and stone, worn slick from the millions of people who have trekked up to see these ancient buildings. There is a WC at the bottom before you enter, and another one at the top just beyond the Parthenon.
