Wonderfull object entrance 4€ if you are on pHd must see colection of book :-p
Interesting archaeological site right near Monastiraki Square...keep an eye out for the wild tortoises!
A cute library with some history dating back to the Roman era. You have to pay to enter which isn't entirely necessary in my opinion. Also, be aware of a gang of men "giving away" wristbands in this area, on multiple occasions over the span of three days they harassed me and my partner when we walked near them trying to give us a wristband but coming across in a very threatening and scary manner, grabbing my partner by the wrist at one point.
One of the best things about great conquerors like Hadrian is the number of beautiful remnants that left. And the library built by the former Roman emperor is definitely one of them. One can only imagine piles of papyrus rolls and... well.... :) Definitely worth visiting not only if you have it on the way to Acropolis. It's "only" 2EUR outside season and 4 during the season - if visiting during the high season and plan more sites/museums, consider buying the combined pass for 30Eur. Stray dogs and cats as you can see in the photo are a natural part of Greece, so no worries. Toilets on site.
