It’s impressive in its own right but compared to other ruins in Athens the Arch of Hadrian falls a little short.

Arch of Hadrian is at the east end of the ancient Athens historic district. It is a great place to start your tour. There is no charge and you can get some good photo ops. It is also right next to the Temple of Zeus....More

Wow, this is so cool and it is just across the street from the entrance to the Planka. Be sure to walk around and get a beautiful sky blue picture of this amazing Arch.

Monumental marble arch honouring the Roman Emperor Hadrian, located at the side of a very busy road. A marvel that its still standing.

The best thing about this: It is free. Most of the monuments in Athens are expensive to visit. This is right between the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus at the bottom of Plaka, therefore...yes, it is a must see objective. Tip, skip the walk around...More

Built in the honor of the Emperor Hadrian and completed in 131 AD, it marks the entrance to the extension of the city that Hadrian planned to build. On the side facing the Acropolis is written, “This is Athens, the ancient city of Theseus,” and...More

This arch is very close to the Temple of Zeus and just by a very busy main street. It makes for a good photo opportunity, and there is no charge to visit.
