This is a very quiet site you may even have to yourself. It’s not near other popular sites. Very interesting history that’s explained well on signs in the park. Lots of plants, nice shady places to relax, and a really neat archeology site. Worth the...More

The sit.e was included in our multi site pass so we went on the way to the War Museum. There is little doubt that Aristotle was a legend but there is little remaining at this site to show what was here in Aristotle's time apart...More

We passed this way on the way to Syntygma Square from Pantheniac Stadium. Basically an open field enclosed by a fence with some display boards. As an admirer of Greek philosophers I felt it was cool to walk on the earth that he had tread...More

Not worth seeing as there is nothing to see. They aren’t even completely sure the site is the Lyceum. A bad joke really.

Couldn’t believe that was it. Just nothing to see Could be done in 5-10 minutes We had the package museum card so it was included free. I saw many reviews advising not to go but still we went. Now I regret wasting time in it....More

I'm going to push back against some of the reviews posted here. Aristotle's Lyceum is a quality landmark centrally-located right near Plaka. While there is admittedly less to see here than say, the Acropolis or Agora, the historical value of the location, and its relative...More

This place is included in the combo ticket It is far from the other attractions, you basically don't see anything but some foundations.
