This ancient ruin was on my top three list to do while in Athens, however I was disappointed with the lack of information on the temple as well as the expensive 6 Euro entrance fee. There isn’t much to see when you are inside the...More

I recommend going with a guide. It is so helpful to have someone point out everything you are seeing. So many things missed if you are just walking by.

It looks amazing from the tour bus, and from the top of the acropolis, but it was closed by 3 each day so didn't get to walk about it.

And that will be good. I don't think it is worth the entrance. It is much appreciated from far. There is nothing else to see.

it is a beautiful ruin but it does not make much sense to pay the entry - it is all good visible from behind the fence - from the area with hadrians gate

Amazing place! You can spend several hours walking around and admiring the magnificence of this temple worthy of taking lots of pictures. Athens is wonderful! Not to be missed.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
