We were glad to have seen this, as we might not have bothered had we not had the combined ticket, as it would have been expensive at €8 each. There is one major monument here which is visible from the road. We enjoyed our walk around the monument which is under some reconstruction and conservation currently so get all the way round. There are also Roman baths here which are interesting too. The monument to Zeus was started by the Greeks in 450 BC but wasn't actually finished until 1132 AD in Hadrians time. All adds to the picture and is an iconic part of the Athens skyline so we are glad we took the time to visit.

The temple is huge and has little standing, but it was worth the walk. I really enjoyed seeing the place and seeing everything up close. When you buy the ticket for acropolis you have a 30 euros option with more temples and this is included in this ticket. Separately it cost about 8 euros.

It was either a building site or archaeological dig when we were there. Either way is was mostly empty space with some rocks scattered here and there, no explanation as to the origin of ANYTHING. Without context, a pile of rocks remains a pile of rocks, no matter how old they look!! I would suggest just look from the road side and save the 8 euros to spend at the ancient Agora.

This is, of course, one of the wonders of the Ancient World. An amazing place and well worth a visit. So why would they employ such twisted, unfriendly individuals in a customer-facing role at the ticket office? After handing over €60 for two passes to visit all the ancient attractions (not just the Zeus Temple) we had the tickets literally thrown at us as we were clearly interrupting a private conversation between the clerk and her friends. We were lucky enough, in a strange way, to visit the Acropolis and surrounding sites during COVID. We almost had the place to ourselves! But turning up there clearly irked the staff. If you're lucky you might even see a tortoise.

If you've bought an Athens pass, it's definitely worth a visit. Very impressive columns, vast. Not a lot else to see.
