ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF ROMAN BATH
Dec 2019
These ruins sit alongside a busy thoroughfare in Athens, under a canopy and were discovered when a Metro airshaft was being sunk. The ventilation shaft was moved elsewhere. These baths date from the late 3rd or early 4th century AD and were expanded in the 5th century. If you are in the area of the National Gardens well worth stopping and looking down upon history.

Roadside Attraction Near Parliament
Aug 2019
The Ancient Bath is an old Roman bath house which is located along the side of the road as you pass the National Garden, near the parliament building. It is very well displayed, with a covering and a transparent barrier around it to stop you falling in. There are several information boards to read as you walk around it.

There is nothing much to see here requiring a dedicated visit. You can see most of it from the footpath above.

Well worth a visit - no entrance fee
Apr 2019 • Friends
Located adjacent to the National Gardens, the baths were discovered during the construction of the proposed Metro Station, subsequently relocated. Viewed from the public footpath there is no fee to view these ruins, which are well worth a visit, located close to Handrian’s Arch and the Temple of the Olympian Zeus.

Ancient Roman Bath is located at the end of National garden. The ruins are covered and preserved and information is also provided. Not much to see!

Visited Roman Baths as Part of a Subway Tour
Apr 2018 • Solo
By default, the construction of the Athens Subway in the 2000's was the largest single archaeological dig ever in the city. Many of the stations display artifacts found at the station and some even left the buried layers of 3000 years of history displayed behind glass in the stations. My favorites were the exposed Roman Baths and riverbed. A fascinating tour that only cost a 4.5E daily Subway pass.

Fairly interesting but probably not worth a dedicated visit- walk past it on your way to something, stop for a couple minutes.

Cool Roman Baths just at the side of a very busy road. It's protected and there's a bit of information up explaining the archaeological site. We walked up from the Temple of Olympian Zeus and then back to the Acropolis Museum, added maybe 10 minutes.
