Other than the historic nature of this site, it doesn't have much going for it. If you want to see great ruins, try Cambodia, Mexico, Peru, etc. If you like broken columns and stones that leave a lot to the imagination, than I guess you...More

€20 or €30 for a combined ticket, where you can also visit Hadrian’s Library, Temple of Olympian Zeus, The Ancient Agora of Athens and a couple more. Hope this helps.
