This place is beautiful and makes you appreciate the Greek accuracy and historic times and how much they were advanced to their time. It's a nice walk from the city - go there :)

This site is easy to access and wonderful to look at. It was across the street from our hotel and we were lucky enough to get to look at it every night. Getting to walk through it was even better.

Not very far from the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. Easy walk, very peaceful place, you forget you are in the middle of the city. We enjoyed our time here.

We stepped int o the Temple of Zeus, when we were walking to the National gardens. Before arrival, we have read some not really encouraging opinions about the ruins, but I stronlgy disagree. This place is worth seeing. Although not much is well preserved, from what you can see you can easily judge the original magnitude of the place. And... More

So have to admit that we loved looking at the column that fell. It made us realize how difficult it was to build and how amazing it is. A beautiful temple -- part of the combination ticket with the Acropolis.

I always thought Zeus lived above everything, turned out it's not true haha, it's a nice place worth to visit but I only recommend it if you bought the full ticket with the acropolis otherwise it's like 7 euros and not much to see to be honest.

One cannot believe it until you stand in front of it and realize how awesome this structure used to be even 2500 years ago!

Nice walk inside, not too crowded. Interesting ruins of classic house and Roman bath . On the way out go see the Hadrian gate. We did this before going to the Acropolis museum.

There are very few ruins in this area, but its a cool quick stop during a trip through Athens! It is a part of the group ticket we got at the Acropolis

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
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, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
