Temple Of Olympian Zeus - Review

The Columns of Olympian Zeus or the temple of Zeus is a structure that represents the magnificence of ancient Greece but lies in a state of decadence today. What used to be perhaps the largest temple in Greece now remains as a few odd columns. This doesn’t make it any less beautiful to see though.

The temple used to have a whopping 104 columns and although only 15 remain now, one marvels at their beauty and intricacy. A column which fell in the medieval ages has cracked into several discs and they have been preserved here in the same state. As a beautiful ruin and as a reminder of the past, this place is very interesting to see. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Athens itinerary 7 days.

Temple Of Olympian Zeus, Athens Reviews

  • Not expensive to enter and can view from the outside Can buy multiple site location tickets at booth No shade close to ruins some limited seating Drink machines with low cost water etc available at entrance Other ruins inside that cant be seen from outside Very little maintenance has been carried out on signage pathways or roped off areas. Some ruins exposed and people walking on them Very little information provided for people to read A lot more could be done to improve the whole experience given it is such an important part of history

  • A pleasant excursion in the center of old Athens. The temple retains some glimpses of its former splendor as you walk the grounds. Excavations of the older temples dedicated to Cronus and Rhea are also visible. Small tip- if you want to skip the ticket line to the Acropolis and the Slopes, visit here first and buy the package deal of entry to six locations. Then after your brief visit you can walk to the Acropolis five minutes away and beat the long lines.

  • This was a spectacular site. We arrived around 0930 in the morning and there were only a handful of people at the site already. The site offers several benches the have great views of the ancient Temple. At the gate is a small gift shop, as well as a vending machine. Price for a water at the time was €0.5 for 500ml?. It is also close to bus and tram stops if you do t want to walk very far.

  • An impressive site to see. Until you are actually there you do not appreciate the enormity of the stone columns. They are huge in size and tower above you like a modern tower block. The man power to do those thousands of years ago must have been immense. Very much worth the visit!!!

  • The actual place is empty. There is only the runes of the temple that are really impressive. If you paid the discovery package you should definitely take a look. You have a noce view of the Acropolis out there. Its so sad that the temple was never finished. If you want to stay there for a bit, don’t forget your sunscreen because there’s no trees out there.the big plus is that there practically no tourists out there so that’s the best place to relax and have a nice view!
