Ancient yes! Important yes. Like the Italian forum. Wear good walking shoes, dress warmer then you think. Sun is out, air is great but it is still cool.

There is another one called Roman Agora which is smaller than the Ancient Agora and has Tower of the Wind. Ancient Agora has so many parts including the museum but my fav is the Temple of Hephaestus.

I was running around the place with a dumb grin on my face like a kid in a toystore. Simply loved every small stone there. The Stoa was amazing outside and inside. The most beautiful spot for me, though, was the temple of Hephaistos. Definately a must see!

The Ancient Agora was one of our favorite sites - our guidebook did not do it justice. The place gives you the feel of what it might have been like to be a citizen of ancient Greece out for a walk with friends and family. In the middle of the square is a place where they would post the news... More

So our hotel was practically across the street from this attraction and yet because we would head left from our hotel we almost mossed it. We saw it only hours before we left for the airport! It's beautiful and well maintained..a great hike to take before getting on a plane! Do not miss the museum. It's not huge, but has... More

This was a really cool site for me to visit, just to see the difference between the Greek agora and Roman forum. The tour guide who recommended it to us upsold the museum a bit, but it was still good to see that. There is very little (if any) information about the site spread throughout, so you will definitely have... More

Getting to Ancient Agora is one of the major points as far as the historical attractions are concerned! Although not many of the ruins are well kept here, it gives you a good insight into ancient everyday life. The renovated South Stoa gives you a glimpse of how magnificent and outstanding this ancient architecture was!

A great place to see how the ancient city was organized based on the government and life styles of the day. Check out the museum. (Part of the Acropolis combo ticket.)
