These ruins, located in the heart of modern Athens, were once the site of the marketplace in ancient times, a political, cultural and economic center of the ancient world.

I love this place. Unlike most of the other historical sites this one you could get up close and touch. They most definitely had some things roped off, but for the most part you could walk among the ruins and let your imagination wander. It...More

Tired of the crowded Plaka or Ermou St then the Agora is the place to go. The day I visited I did have to share this ancient beauty with twenty other people! It is easy to find, below the Acropolis. Take time to just wander...More

Perhaps the most interesting ruins left in Athens. The place is definitely more interesting than the Acropolis, and here is the best-preserved ancient Greek temple - that of Hephaestus. On Sunday in winter the entrance is free of charge.

Great to walk round and plenty to see, even spotted a tortoise! We were surprised to discover there was no charge when we went in on the Sunday afternoon. You also get some fantastic views of the Acropolis from the grounds.

Make sure you get an audioguide, otherwise you lose a lot of the history of this place. Definitely recommend at least an hour here to get a good look around.

This huge complex really gave us a sense of how things looked in Ancient Athens. There were remnants of virtually every aspect of life at the time that we could walk through and admire. Very affordable to visit these sites in the off-season, and not...More

This place was open from 8AM to 3PM,their normal winter hours. We forgot that and showed up at 2PM so we only got to see the stoa of Attalon but nothing else. They had plenty of staff to chase people out by 3PM. Too bad,...More

Yes. The Agora costs 8€ if you don't buy the combination ticket for the Acropolois which is 30€. Open 8 to 7 every day.
