Probably interesting for someone who has a big interest of Greek culture. Without a guide this area is not very informative or interesting. Read in advance to get the most of the visit.

With the Acropolis ticket (Acropolis and museums) and Rick Steve's audio tour, we headed toward the ancient/classical Greek Agora. The most informative, best value! Without the audio tour, not sure we would have gotten as much out of it. The agora was home to Athens’s marketplace, political/social center, athletic contests, education and theater. It was the center of democracy. Socrates,... More

You enter past the pay booth and can see the ruins of the Ancient Agora of Athens ahead of you and the Acropolis in the near distance above. Walking about you can see size and feel the activity that one would have occurred within the grounds. This site is well worth a visit, but look out for the street vendors... More

Frankly, there ain't much here beyond the little museum and one of the best preserved Greek temples. But close your eyes and imagine that Socrates developed philosophy here just by haranguing his neighbors. Plato and Aristotle followed him around like puppies in these streets. Euripides and Aristophanes refined Greek theater into social criticism for the vanished crowds. Pericles ruled the... More

The Agora gives you a better view of what life was like in the period and how they assembled their urban lifestyle, You truly get a feeling of how people used this space, more so than the nearby Acropolis.

Went to this site for a university trip. The site has a fantastic view of the acropolis. The museum on the site is absolutely fantastic and it's great to be able to walk through the different parts of the site. One place to see in Athens

We missed this the first time we were in Athens. It is so worth a visit. Beautiful architecture and grounds. This place has a ton of history so make sure you have a guide to make it more interesting. Glad we didn't miss it this visit. They do not allow drinks inside.

The ability to walk through active ancient archeological dig sites was amazing! Being so close to see what life was like over a thousand years ago was amazing!

Very disappointed that this historical site was closed when we visited Athens. Hopefully they fix the issues or whatever the reason why it was shut down!

We were short on time and only had 1 hours to visit. We tried to see all really fast, but missed the old temple which was the most beautiful from the photos we saw. So if you come here, first go and see that and then see the other things. The museum is inside the large renovated building. It's fairly... More
