We visited this temple as it was on our archaeological pass. I loved it. No words can say how grand the temple actually is when you are on the site and the children were in awe of it. A holiday highlight and something I will...More

Summer Hours: Daily: 08:00 - 19:30 You should goto The Acropolis first and purchase €30 ticket which gets you in there and many other sites over 4 day period including Temple Zeus.
