Be very careful when you come down. There are no handrails. I witnessed one elderly gentleman fall about 20 feet on to hard rock. I do not know how badly he was hurt. It gets crowded going up and down from the Acropolis. The people going up are on the inside and the people coming down are on the outside and there is, as I said before no handrail. If your not paying attention you can fall off the cliff. The path is not very wide and it is difficult to get emergency aid up to the summit. They must not have as many lawyers in Greece as the USA.
