"Temple of Zeus" Temple Of Olympian Zeus Tip by Jmill42

Temple Of Olympian Zeus, Athens: 69 reviews and 135 photos

  View of the Temple of Zeus with the Acropolis
by Jmill42

This temple, which is a short walk east of the Acropolis, was the largest temple ever built in Greece. It was constructed under the emperor Hadrian in 131 AD. Sadly, only 15 of the original 104 columns remain. But, with a little extrapolation, you should be able to concieve just how big this temple would have been in its glory. It is worth the short walk from the Acropolis.

It is included in the Acropolis ticket pack.
