“The National Garden is easily accessible, as its’ main entrance is located just a few meters away from Syntagma (Constitution) Square and the Parliament. Although the 15,5 acres of lush vegetation (to which one can also add the 13 acres of Zappeion) it occupies, where used already since ancient times as fields, the area was formed to a huge private (Royal) Garden in 1849 under the instructions of Queen Amalia. About the same year, 15000 plants, from all over the world, including Sounio and Evia in Greece, where planted.”

“They are known as the columns of Olympian Zeus, but they relate to the remains of a majestic temple in honor of Zeus. The temple was the largest in ancient Greece and was completed after a long adventure by Andrianos. Of the 114 columns today 15 are saved. The space is clean with proper supervision and fills you with a positive aura. From many parts of the site one can see the Acropolis with the Parthenon and one view of the Andrian Gate. Prefer hours without strong sun.”
