The various building and sights inside were very interesting with a a small museum inside the Stoa. Lots of information to read. Admission is free for students so remember your student card!

Situated just below the Akropolis, the Agora is a relative haven of peace after its bustle. It was the commercial, civic and legal centre of Classical Athens. The ruins are not tall, but are instructive so long as you have a guide. Greek guides are...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.
