The largest ancient Greek temple, unfortunately of 104 columns at the moment, remained only 15. It was built for 650 years.

Being in Athens and not visiting this place is like being in Paris and not seeing Eiffel Tower. Main difference: the monuments of Athens are even more spectacular than most of even historical places in other places in Europe. It's worth to remember that one...More

The Temple of Olympian Zeus must have been truly monumental when it was completed. Unfortunately time has not been kind to this structure; several columns standing in formation in the centre of a large dusty field, and one fallen column, are all that are left...More

This place was deserted and quite interesting. We had our guide with us and that was quite helpful as these are ruins.

After visiting all ancient sites and temples in Athens, Temple of Zeus was our last stop on the day. This temple took so long to build (646 years) due to the political turmoils. Today, most of the columns have fallen but sixteen of them are...More

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,
