Temple of Olympian Zeus
4.5/5
282 Reviews
sculptorThe Temple of Olympian Zeus is a huge temple in the center of Athens, the capital of Greece. The construction began during the reign of the Athenian tyrants in the 6th century BC. They had envisaged the construction of the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until about 638 years after the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD. During the Roman period, this temple consisted of 104 huge pillars and was known as the largest temple in Greece and one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world. The glory of this temple was short-lived, and was abandoned about a century after the castle was built. In the centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire, building materials were widely excavated to supply construction projects elsewhere in the city. Despite this, a large part of the temple remains today, especially the sixteen of the original giant pillars, and it is still part of a very important archaeological site in Greece.
Syntagma Square
4.4/5
303 Reviews
Square
121***59Syntagma square is one of the most famous squares in Athens. It is located directly in front of the lovely old Royal Palace that houses the Greek Parliament. It is a must see when you visit Athens. A good suggestion is to visit early in the morning. I went there in August which is high season, but if you visit around 7 am there are less people around and you can have the palace guards almost to yourself for taking photos. Don't forget to check out the famous hotel Grande Bretagne which is just off to the side of Syntagma square. Additionally, a lot of hop on hop off sightseeing busses stop in front of the square.
Acropolis Museum

Museum
