We visited here after going to the more visited sites and it was a pleasant afternoon spent wandering through the ruins found a few tortoises roaming and, like everywhere else in Athens, cats amazing history

I feel bad definining this location as average, as it is a well preserved important historical site. However it is only worth a short visit, as it is only a small area. There is a leaflet provided with the purchase of tickets. You can buy a 12 euro ticket which allows entrance to other sites such as Acropolis and Ancient... More

I really liked this site. I liked the fact that you could actually reach out and touch these amazing pieces of history when in so many other sites, you cannot (unless you're like the lady we saw at the Acropolis who literally read the "do not touch the marble" sign and then reached out and touched the marble). Perhaps it... More

This is really hard to miss it since anyone visitied the Historic part of the city of Athens at 99% chances has passed by it. Not much remains today but still worth visiting event by walking outside the fences that protect it.

It defenitely must have been a great place one, but not much remains of the agora itself. You have to let your imagination run, as little information is presented. The tower of winds next to the Agora is a very nice building (but can not be visited).

Part of your Acroplis admission ticket, very small, takes less than 30 minutes to walk thru and take pics but another nice set of ruins to enjoy. No crowds!

This is no where as large as the Ancient Agora but worth seeing as there are some nice ruins and the Tower of the Winds. Apparently after the Romans moved in they wanted this to be the epi-center of Athens instead of the other "ancient" agora. TIP – if you purchase the Athens historical site combo ticket for the Acropolis... More

Worth it if you are exploring Athens a little deeper than just the Acropolis. I don't understand the negative reviews for this site. I thought it was a good site. And, the Tower of the Winds is great.

If you don't have time, this will be easy to pass. But if you have just 20mn you could visit at least the tower of winds since the Roman forum is on the way between Acropolis and Agora. And included in the Acropolis ticket.

Not very much to see...probably the most interesting thing is The Tower of the Winds - a little octogonal tower,stone made and the only building pretty well preserved.As for the rest,only spreaded stones,the ruins of a monumental gate and other a few some half broken-downcolumns.
