This is an extensive collection of remains spread over a large area. Wear comfy walking shoes as the ground is uneven. Lots of trees for welcome shade. Only 7 euro to get in for an adult. Teenager was free. We spent about 2 hours here enjoying wandering amongst the various ruins. The highlight is the temple of Hephaestus and the... More

I loved walking through the areas where Socrates, Plato, and their peers walked. Before our trip I read Mary Renault's historical novel, "The Last of the Wine," and that book made this area come alive for me. It really helped me more profoundly remember those ancient times and people were real and truly lived here. Definitely a place to bring... More

The Agora is a haven of tranquility in the vibrant city of Athens. It gives a very good impression of public life during the hellenistic and roman era. The renovated temple and museum is impressive.

The Agora is included in the 12 euro Acropolis pass. Here were living Socrates and Plato... a nice place to explore.

We have visited Athens twice in 4 years and stopped by the Agora (both Ancient and Roman) each time. We found this to be an interesting place and easy to walk through both the museum section and the grounds. Well worth the time in the Museum as it explained a great deal about the activity at the Agora and not... More

Most tourists rush by the this place on their speedy daytour of the Acroplis. I do not understand why so few visit the old market/city centre of old Athens as this was the place of all life, commerce, gatherings and thinking. This is the site of Sokrates. By all means: GO HERE!

As worth visiting as the parthenon, this ancient site has actually more history than it's hilltop neighbour and the temple on the site is in really good condition. It's a large site with a museum down the side so take your time and some water (as it's only available at the entrance). In August when I visited it was almost... More

It is amazing to think that you are walking in the shadow of Socrates and Plato when you explore the area of the Agora. Just take your time to see what you can find, but don't miss the lovely church and museum. It is accessed behind the Acropolis and is free for U18. It is part of the combined ticket... More
