There isn't much to see at this site.
It doubles as a city park and kids and families play there but this is where Plato had his academy.
The site is in the north west part of Athens, a couple of miles from the Agora. To get there you wind and wind through industrial sites.
Almost nothing is marked and there is no one there to watch over it or to answer questions. Very few tourists go there; it really functions as a park.
The first three photos were from the west side of the street; this is from the east side. Note the park benches.
