As in my other tip, the remains of ancient Athens are now being preserved as they are exposed by new building.

In Platia Monastirakiou you can see ancient walls, drains and watercourses exposed underneath protective glass covers.

Sadly, the guard rails around the covers are too high and too far away for small people like me to see clearly.

But if you are bigger than I am do have a look as you wander through the square.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
