The Agora, just down the road from the Parthenon and the Acropolis is the less crowded but equally impressive antiquity of Athens. The amount of statues, columns, buildings and other accrue roman are awe inspiring. Walking down the dusty road, past the remnants of ancient buildings, one feels like a time traveler eves dropping on the day to day life... More

The most visible monument is the temple of Hephestus (or Thesion) which still adorns a low hill in the Northwest end of the Agora.The Stoa of Attalos which dominates the East end of the site was built around 150 BC and was reconstructed in the 1950's in order to shelter the artifacts that were unearthed from the surrounding area.

The Ancient Agora has lots of history over its various incarnations starting about 3000 years ago. At the moment, it's largely a field of loosely arranged ruins and blocks of stone with three impressive buildings remaining. There aren't many detailed signs at the site. Typically just a sign that says the name of what a particular pile of rubble used... More

Probably the best view of the Agora is when you are about half way up the Acropolis. The Temple of Hephaestus is clearly visible as is the general lay out and size of the Agora.

Off the end of the high mesa containing all the facilities of antiquity, the agora is a pleasant stroll. We visited on a Sunday morning just after a rain shower. It held the ghosts of ancient past in a quiet neighborhood. Hard to imagine the commerce that took place there over the centuries

Walking around the Agora transposes you 2000 years back in time. This is a very large area and dense with amazing history. You need to allow for at least half a day. Walk to the temple on the hill, read about each site, rest in the shade of the gardens.

Very relaxing place - you forget you are in a bustling city... take the time and enjoy it.... Wander around the statues, the Temple of Hephaestos and what the birds and flowers in the sunshine. It is worth paying the entrance fee but you can go in free on Sundays and out of season - although there may be more... More

This is an exceptionally important site and the museum is really worth it. Be sure to have water and sunscreen. It gets hot.
