  • Nothing wrong with the site...insufficient info available generally. BUT....this afternoon We witnessed a large group of Africans (at least this is how they described themselves) harassing people gene...  more »
  • Another site that can be visited utilising the €30 package ticket, a great package ticket. Site is just off the main centre square and is small but good. Worth the use of your package ticket.  more »
  • Near the Roman Agora the site is included in the cumulative ticket of the museums, very beautiful The remains of painting that can be glimpsed entering the wall.

  • It’s truly amazing knowing your walking around a structure 3000 years old. There’s still a lot of structures left in the complex, which makes for some great pictures. The museum, which is kind of hidden provides a lot of interesting information, especially the details of what Athens was experiencing during War War 2. Luckily Athens was spared the destruction of the Nazis and bombings of the Allies, which spared all these beautifully historical structures. I would definitely suggest spending the 30 Euro and getting access to all the sites and spend a couple days exploring.
  • The remains of a library commissioned by Roman Emperor Hadrian. Although quite interesting and even featuring an active archaeological dig, the site is relatively small, and would require 30-60m at most. Depending on your preferences, the site is either conveniently or unpleasantly close to tourist central, and therefore everything that goes with that.
  • Wonderful. Where past meets the present and they dance in harmony. It is where the knowledge was produced and spread across the world. Amazing
  • We went on a sunny day to enjoy walking under the sun in a winter day. That's the only reason you have to visit. In a city so rich in history and monuments, this is so poor that it didn't worth the 2€ of the ticket. It should be free.
  • interesting to see if you are into old architecture. if you are a normal person as i am, after visiting Agora and Acropolis, this is not that interesting anymore. moreover, you can see most of the stuff from the outside. the only reason we got into this was becouse we had combo tickets and then why not. the surrounds are really interesting. the market and the fruits you can find around this place are super nice.
