The Roman Agora is a few minutes away from Hadrian's Library in the city center, so don't miss it if you're walking around the area. Also, it's not to be confused with the Ancient Agora, which covers a larger park area and houses the Stoa of Attalos, Temple of Hephaestus etc. When we visited, the Tower of the Winds (at... More

If you are like me and an obsessed with greek history, you will, like me, shed a tear of emotion upon entering the Forum and seeing the old pieces of Athens in front of you. The place is not so big, like the Acropolis, and the ground is even and easy to walk around, it has some places to sit... More

This was also included in the ticket we purchased so we decided to visit. It was very interesting to see and much larger than expected. We spent an hour roaming the grounds. Climbed the mountain/hill to see the Temple of Hephaistos which also had great views of the city.

The entry was included in the Acropolis ticket that I got. It is a large area where you can meander around the grounds, which are flat. You can see how it would have been a very busy marketplace. We went after the Acropolis which dominates the skyline here. There are a lot of restaurants outside, but we were not allowed... More

This was my favorite place to visit in Athens. Ancient Agora was peaceful and has one of the most complete ruins in Athens.

This sight is just beautiful to walk through and maybe sot down and relax for a few minutes away from some of the craziness :)

This is much smaller than the nearby Ancient Agora, but also cheaper (2 euros when I was there). Unfortunately, when I was there the Tower of the Winds was covered with worksheets, but I could still see some columns and arches. However, if you want to save some money and don't care about walking around, you can see everything from... More

Just go here if you have a lot of time to kill or if you have an exeptional interest of Greek history or archeology.

This is small compared to other sites nearby and the (covered and not available) Tower of the Wind is on this site. Because its free with an Acropolis ticket its worth a wander but if pushed for time this is one that could be left out without loss.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
