This is where Socrates walked and taught the youth of Athens the meaning of life. Yes, what remains are ruins of the ancient agora but written guides abound and a student of history and philosophy can imagine how life was in ancient times. This is an amazing tourist attraction and a must see.

A huge site with a lot of historical buildings, in particular stoa. Since a lot of tourists only visit the Acropolis the Agora is a quiet and peaceful place. Unfortunately the Greek built the metroline through the Agora.

Wonderful place to absorb the history of ancient Athens. Walk the area frequented by Pericles, Alcybiades and Plato. See the remains of the old prison where Sokrates drank the fatal hemlock. This is a marvellous historic and relaxing area in the centre of bustling Athens.

Enjoyed the museum. The artifacts helped me understand how accent people lived. The ruin itself doesn't help my brain connect. This is in the old town, so it's nice to visit.

After the crowds of the Acropolis the Ancient Agora makes a welcome and very peaceful change. It is possible to sit or just wander around and just enjoy the views. The Agora does not have the spectacular ruins of the Acropolis, so does not attract so many tourist, but it is a pleasant place to visit and relax.
