Not much information is indicated on the statue of Lord Byron in Athens. I only realized his importance to the Greece population when I read about his history. Well, if I tell you the Story of Don Juan, does that help? Yes, Lord Byron the English romantic poet is also a Greek hero for political work during the Greek War of Independence.
The Statue sits there secretly from crowd that pass by. Unless you are with a tour guide you might not know who he was.
Easy access from Zappeion and Hadrian’s Arch.
