Possibly better than the Acropolis!

Loved this place the temple is the most complete of all of them. Great place to walk around, lots of places to just sit and take it all in.

If you know your local history you'll know that this was the city centre in the era of the great Greek orators and politicians. However you'll really need to use your imagination because nothing has been done to make this historic site in the slightest bit user friendly. You'll see a series of dusty ruins over run with weeds. It's... More

Was able to walk where St Paul and Socrates walked was humbling. Very little crowds and you can really imagine how people live

You can actually ramble among old archeological ruins. There is a good-sized museum with many finds on display and interesting explanations. And don't forget to climb to the temple at the top!

A hidden gem just off monastriaki square. A great place to visit. A huge site to explore and amazing views of Parthenon and acropolis above. Well with a visit and only €30 for a multi site ticket.

Don't miss the amazing opportunity of having a long morning or afternoon walk among the ancient relics of the Ancient Agora of Athens. Enjoy the sun, the wonderful environment and see how the ancient greeks were feeling hanging out there and having their philosophic conversations. Remember to visit the excellent museum too !

If you come to the Agora looking for monuments and buildings, you will be disappointed. Go straight away to the Acropolis. However, if you come prepared having read about the ancient Athenian democracy, how this little hamlet of farmers, aristocrats and soldiers created the most consequential city in the history of mankind, having birthed both politics and arguably science, then...

Well, this is a really must see place. It's were the ancient Greek civilization breed and developed. There were many commercial and educational buildings, along with big residences. Inside the area of Ancient Agora, there are two really interested buildings : the temple of Hephestus ( the best preserved temple of ancient Greece ) and the impressive gallery of Attalus,... More
