“Just near Temple of Zeus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

It is on your way either from or to the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Just off the main road and with free access it is historically quite an interesting structure. Not a 'must' but if you are checking out the temple and then going further down to the Panathenaic Stadium you should make the effort.

“If you have time, why not?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

If you have time in Athens to stop by, why not? There is the arch, some toppled columns and other ruins. It won't blow your mind, but it is a bit interesting.

“Not much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

There isn't much to see at this arch. It is right next to the road way and right outside the fence to the Temple of Zeus. It is free to see since its wide open to the public. It's still good for a couple pictures of it with the Acropolis in the background.

“Close to other sites”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

It is within walking distance of the other sites such as the Acropolis. So if you are doing a tour of Athens you might as well see it all including the Hadrian's Arch. It is nothing spectacular, but still interesting nevertheless.

“Good stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

If you're staying in Plaka it would be a shame not to pop over to this site. It's not the most incredible or most exciting but its still worth a look a snap! Also chuck the guy in the soldiers outfit a euro. It's only a euro and you get a hilarious and cliche happy snap.
