First..let me say this is not the only thing to be seen here .Hadrian's Arch at the entrance to the site is wonderful.But it closes at 2.45pm!!!!
All around the site are the remains of houses and baths and smaller temples and municipal buildings.You can wander round and see all this free with your Acropolis ticket!!! So as recommended...go to the Acropolis first!! We also saw 2 species of wild tortoise..much to the delight of our teens!!! They were just wandering around the site!!!
Let me tell you,there may only be a few pillars left but these pillars have been intricately carved with acanthus leaves and are stunning testimony to the ancient Greek stonemasons! What must have stood here and this is where you need your imagination,must have been an incredible sight to behold! Incredible with the Parthenon backdrop,confirming what an awesome sight Athens must have been then!
You can buy cold drinks from a machine and there are loos here too!
Definately worth a visit, remembering it shuts at about 2.45pm.
