It's main attraction of Athens. You can't visit the capital without going up the acropolis and visiting the Parthenon. It's best if a guide will be with you to understand the rich history.

The Parthenon, an icon of Western civilization, is one of the most famous buildings in the world. The temple, built in the fifth century BC, overlooks the city of Athens from its majestic position on top of the sacred Acropolis Hill.

You Can't go to Athens without going up to see the Parthenon.
It is the focal point of the city and the view dominates where ever you are at.
It is fascinating and I would highly reccomend getting a guide.
To go up there and not have a clue what you are looking at is defeating the purpose of going up.
There are many guides that can be hired for a couple of hours and they are all government approved and the sories they tell are amazing.

Simply an amazing building with so much history, from being constructed, defaced, and even used to store ammunition. The new museum nearby is also a must see that really puts the Parthenon in context, although you will have to go to London to find some of the marbles.
