There is an abundancy of superb attractions in central Athens and the Roman Forum is one of the highlights (IMHO). A stunning place which will be free of charge if you have paid for access to the Acropolis (even on a different day - just retain your receipt). Very well maintained archaeological site with some very interesting artefacts. Certainly worth... More

The Roman Agora was constructed from the time of around 15BC (roughly the time of the area) and served at some point as a forum. There isn't a great deal to see now without using your imagination as the area is largely stones, mostly destroyed walls. You can still imagine what it may have been like. If you're visiting the...

Next to Hadrian's Library, we managed to get in before it closed for the day. We sat and had a meeting about life, consciousness and where we were going to eat on the steps. We took a moment and had a meeting as this place used to be used for.

North of Hadrians library, the site is easily missed. The Horologion is currently being restored and is completely under cover, but the site still gives a good idea of the ancient shopping and meeting place during the Roman period of Athens. Entry is included in the Acropolis ticket.

Nice walk about with the ghosts of time past. Also contains the largest intact ancient temple in Greece. Nice half day, easy walk down from the Acropolis and contains a museum and ancient church in addition to the other ancient ruins.

The Roman Agora is easy to access and could be quite interesting. Unfortunately the main structures are currently being restored and are hidden under sheeting behind fences. This site will probably be amazing once the structures are unveiled.

Very interesting roman ruins and is also the place where the tower of the Wings is located. Unfortunately, at least in summer, the Tower of the Winds was totally covered for restoration.

Location is easy to access as it is right next to Monastiraki station, but seriously site is small and not much to see. The famious Tower of Winds was under maintenance and completely covered.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
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.
