At 360 feet long and 143 feet wide, the Temple of Olympian Zeus is said to be one of the largest temples in the ancient world. The size of the remaining colossal columns gives an idea of its scale. Adjacent to this site is Hadrian's Arch built by Emperor Hadrian to mark the boundary of his city and the classical city. On one side of the frieze the inscription reads "This is Athens, the ancient city of Theseus" and on the other side "This is the city of Hadrian and not of Theseus". From here walk into the Plaka or to the National Gardens,the Zappeion and further on the Panathenaic Stadium. Closest metro station, Acropolis or a 10 minute walk from Syntagma Square. read more about Temple of Olympian Zeus (Olympieion)

Aeigli Lallabai cafe

Aeigli Lallabai cafe

Lallabai cafe is the more casual half of the Aeigli complex, also well known for its excellent restaurant, Cibus. The location is ideal, being just at the perimeter of the National Gardens and across the street from the old Olympic Stadium and Temple of Zeus. A neighboring outdoor cinema plays current releases throughout the summer. During the winter, heating mushrooms are put on the terrace and non-smokers choose to sit in the cafe's elegant interior.

Light snacks, sandwiches, coffees and sweets are served all day. While prices are high for the fare, the quality is better than average. Service is not their strong suit so don't lose energy or impatience expecting your server to check on you; do as the locals and wave, even call out. It's not rude.
