Home of the most darling and beautiful Temple nestled in this park like setting, this is a wonderful respite from the heat and crowds. Ruins you can walk up too and touch, as well as some simply roped off. Benches to sit, a small museum, birds, trees and at least one tortoise. See drainage ditches still an important part of... More

Very much enjoyed visiting this site. Our guide was able to bring it alive in a way I doubt my imagination would have been able to do.

The ancient agora of Athens is nicely preserved site and a must visit. the ideal way to go to acropolis is to enter from the ancient agora, spend about an hour here and then proceed towards the Acropolis. You can visit this with the same ticket of the Acropolis. You can actually see the way city functioned during those days... More

Seeing this from abit e then wandering down the hill to explore on ground level was great. If you stopped and listened you could get a sense of the place. Interesting to see similiar carvings there as in Petra

Not only are there statues that have survived what alot of the ruins haven't but the very well preserved temple of Hephaestus is also here. It is slightly... More

This is the ancient agora near the Monastriraki Metro Station, to the north west of Acropolis hill. This place was the city centre where life in Athens was lived out. Everything happened here; debates, courts, public announcement, counselling, worship, commerce, etc. Leaders were bust here. Apostle Paul stood on the hills to preach too. We didn't get a tour of...
