Another site that can be visited utilising the €30 package ticket, a great package ticket.
Site is just off the main centre square and is small but good.
Worth the use of your package ticket.

Found it very interesting and amazing history. Certainly worth a visit. So many hidden treasures in Athens

Found it at night and it was beautiful. Came back during the day and checked it out again. Closed on Sundays, but can see it from the outside and get a good glimpse. That my be all that is needed. No books to be checked out.

The library was built in the 2nd century AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian and had the capacity to house approximately 16,250 books, in addition to reading rooms etc. Three churches have also been built on the site in the 5th, 7th, and 12th century, non of which remain.

I read there were turtles here and passed that on to the kids but we were disappointed and didn't see any. It was included in our Athens pass so no cost but really not much to see even with the wildflowers in bloom. If you are passing by and have the pass no harm to go in but I wouldn't make an effort to get here. Also not buggy friendly
