Interesting to visit, but in the summer it is to warm to walk around. The view is beautiful and the explanation correct.

See what the original site for the Olympics was like. You can still run the track, and see other stations. A fascinating mix of history and perspective on life. Nice and shady as well!

Very interesting site, although it wasn't clear where exactly Aristotle was born, no house was marked, and maybe it is not known or I didn't understand it. The view is breathtaking!!! A must see if you are in the area! I loved how on top...More
