This was one of the most interesting archeological sites because it is preserved in almost original form! Also has great view of the city

It lets get a bit of an idea of how the Parthenon looked like, but in a smaller scale. It's still pretty cool though.

This was actually the best part of our Athens/ruins trip, in part because we had lower expectations. It was so beautiful here, we were thrilled with the beauty, and we also got to see beautiful birds and turtles. The museum here wasn't exciting, but the...More

This temple was one of the best ancient sites we went to, and there were a few wild tortoise roaming around which was surprising and really cool.

Rick Steves has a wonderful guided tour of this place and gave good information about this temple. It is nice to see a temple close to the final construction.

Get there right when it opens and you can take a bunch of pictures without anyone in them. To think how they stacked those columns. This is part of the ancient agora and well worth a visit. Look around for the tortoises. According to the...More

Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
