This area is a short walk from the Acropolis, and has an excellent museum with items we did not see anywhere else, such as the water clock used to time speeches. The Temple of Hephastus is very intact, and provides a panoramic view of the area.

Offers great views of the Acropolis with lots of shade. It's like walking thru a 3000 year old version of Central Park. It also has the Temple of Hephaistus which is very well preserved. I recommend the Acropolis first thing in the morning, before the crowds get too big, and then walk down the Agro. The share in the later... More

I enjoyed my time in Ancient Agora. It was far more enjoyable than other places I had visited on my stay in Athens. This was a nice park area to walk around and visit some temples in ruins in a much more laid back atmosphere. It was also less busy than some of the other touristy areas which also made... More

This place is about the same for 2500+ years, used from the ancient Greeks and Romans as fleet market and is the same use today including most of the ancient ruins. The Ancient Agora of Classical Athens is the best-known example of an ancient Greek agora, located to the northwest of the Acropolis and bounded on the south by the... More

The buildings and statues here are much better preserved and interesting. You may even want to visit here before the Acropolis.

Admission comes with your ticket to the Acropolis so this is a must see. Not far from the Acropolis and not very crowded. Well preserved ruins. Easy stroll from one end to the other.

There is not much of the original agora that is intact here, so you have to look at diagrams and use your imagination a bit. The temple of Hephaestus and the restored agora building are highlights in this area, but the rest of it is low-lying foundations.
