We really enjoyed walking through the ancient agora. You could imagine how life may have been back then. This is where life really happened. Also to stand on the panathenic way and think that this road has been there for many many years, it is humbling. This ruin site is beautiful, cheap, and not crowded, it will be well worth... More

This was our favorite ruin site. No crowds and no pressure. Plenty of shady spots and you can just meander around, slowly taking it all in. We went twice during our time in Athens.

The site itself is beautiful, little tortoises wondering around the ruins as well and Agora temple is mainly still standing on its own, placed amongst trees and gardens. Unfortunately the staff let this down, there are rude and shouting at members of public. I took a picture of a statue, and the lady came over snatched my camera and deleted... More

Once you have visited the Acropolis, the Agora is the second site to see. Keep your Acropolis ticket as it also covers the Agora (and other sites). It is a big site so allow 2 hours to walk around it.

This location was perfect especially before or after visiting the market! The grounds are quite large and there are three very well preserved buildings (two of which you can access). The staff was helpful and answered all questions. There are a few very hungry dogs that live on the grounds so if you want to bring them a treat please... More

Walking amongst the ancient ruins and in the heart of ancient Athens was great. The statuary and temples were a delight. Easy to get around and see everything within 1-2 hours.

The Agora boast a museum, traces of a large town, a rather complete version of the Parthenon, an ancient church and lots of space to explore.

Another must see. Buy the Acropolis ticket which includes the agora. You will see in here remnants of many past temples and structures. Also there are some cute turtles.

The Agora is just next door to the Acropolis and should not be overlooked (you can visit on the same ticket used for the Acropolis). First, it has the largely intact Temple of Hephaistos, which is a great model for what the Parthenon must have looked like before it was blown up. Second, there are many other ruins on the... More
