This place is good for just wandering around. It's nice to think that right where you are standing, some of the greatest philosophers of all time stood and conversed. How great it would be to go back in time and see Plato and Socrates discussing the issues of justice and piety, or Plato and Aristotle hashing out idealism vs realism.... More

This place is full of ruins, and you can see Temple of Hephaestus here as well. There will be quite a lot of walking here so get prepared.

Walking in the old ruins, you can get a feeling of how it looked 2000 years ago. Also in a very scenic forested area that was a relaxing change from the city

I loved it! This is a huge area. I spent about 2 hours there. Make sure to see the museum in the Stoa (a rebuilt building). Take in the Temple on the hill, both for it and for the views. Just wandering around I was imagining it as the busy meeting place it once was. The signage is pretty good.... More

When I was 14 I was introduced to Euclids books, leading to a lifetime as a mathematician. The clarity of vision and insight stays with me. I have visited the Agora before, but I never cease to be moved by the knowledge that this was where so much of the best of our world , and my own country ,... More

I was tired and footsore and tossed up whether I'd actually see anything new. It was absolutely worth the visit. Not as iconic as the Acropolis but a very good park full of interesting excavations . A true town centre. The treasures are housed in a well displayed museum on site. The temple is particularly well preserved and as such... More

An amazing site to stroll around and soak in the atmosphere of an amazing historical site. Despite the drizzly rain it was impossible not to be in awe of this huge area.

The ticket for the ancient agora is included in the acropolis ticket, so its a must see too!. I really was surprised thinking, "itll just be more ruins" but this is actually one of the best ruins sites to see. The placards that are throughout give you a great overview of just what would have been going on in that... More

In the centre of Athens great to wander around. If you have purchased an Acropolis ticket you can use it to visit the Agora. Lots of experts on hand to offer you an insight. Outside there are lots of good restaurants.

Wandering around this place is a great experience in your visit to Athens. The place is well indicated and due to the multi-atraction ticket one can visit this place on the way down from Acropolis. The ticken can be used for 4 days, so we visited this the day after our visit to Acropolis and Acropolis museum. Agora museum is... More
