History Buff, Greek Buff, Military Buff, Movie Buff - you gotta check this place out. Be warned: there is little to nothing else at this location and facilities/amenities are sparse. This is probably a Greek equivalent to the Alamo and anyone who likes this kinda stuff should take the trek north from Athens to visit this place.

New road to Athens left the monument aside and it is not easy to access these place, being once the place where human belief to duty won the power of a million soldiers. It was disappointing that the newly built museum nearby is open only from 8-5pm

The memorials were very beautiful and it was very interesting to stand in place where played one of the bravest battle in the history of ancient Greece. But the Museum of Thermopile is a completely missed idea. This beautiful new building offer only short 3D film about Thermopylae battle (poor graphics and quality) and interactive room where on big touchscreens... More

Being fascinated with the history of Greece, felt the need to stop here. The monuments are beautiful, and being able to understand the topography of the site where the battle took place was nice. Remember that the sea was much closer to mountains at that time, and you will understand the narrowness of the pass. Don't forget to climb the... More

All of us know about this important battle took place in Thermopiles close to Lamia city that tried to save all the values from Athens and Greece that today We share across the Europe. The willingness from the side of the Leonidas and his soldiers against the Persians was tromedus. They inspire us in many ways how to cope and... More

The sea used to be right behind the statue and a person could see why the Spartans chose this location, a narrow strip between sea and mountains, to hols off the Persians for 3 days. There is just a battle museum now, a couple statues and the famous inscription plaque. But for history buffs and battle buffs, this is a... More

This is about a battlefield and the history of the battle. There is essentially nothing to see other than the geography and it has changed since the original battle. The water has retreated some 6 km from it's original location which means you will have to get your imaginative juices flowing. I found it only so so but it was... More

What can one say about this place. Anyone with a smattering of history and an imagination will find this iconic site worth visiting. Apart from two statues and the plaque on the hill where the Spartans finally died under a hail of arrows there is not much development. Many tourists might need more hand feeding but I loved it particularly... More
