  • 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 »

  • 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.
