I absolutely adore this triumphal arch! It's so imposing and magnificent, and really evokes a time when people knew how to celebrate properly! My favourite place to hang out by in Lisbon.

Hadrian's Arch

Right by the Temple of Olympian Zeus stands Hadrian's Arch along Vassilissis Olgas and Amalias avenues. Once a city gate that connected Athens with the Roman quarters, the arch has inscriptions meant to be read by the passing people. One side reads "This is the city of Hadrian" and the other reads "This is Athens."
