It is located near the acropolis and monstriaki square so its easy to find and see. But really there is nothing to see here nothing special.

Honestly I think this is the least interesting place to see in Athens. If you are low in budget, save your money and go only to the Acropolis. On the other hand, if you are a student from the EU go to the Agora and see for yourself because your ticket is free.

I loved this sight! I was very impressed by the unique octagnal Tower of the Winds. I believe there is no other monument dedicated to the winds. That says something. Furthermore, it is beautful, intriguing.

One of our stops on a day tour of Athens, very interesting area in the heart of the city. Alex with Private Greece Tours ensured we knew how to get the most of our day. Go! Wonderful city, people and amazing experience.

My girlfriend and I visited in early July. If you do any walking in Athens in or around the Plaka or the Acropolis, you're bound to see the Roman Agora. It's essentially inside the Plaka. It's worth seeing if you're in the area, but not a destination in its own right.

When you visit the ruins of the Roman Agora tucked away behind a busy flea market in Athens, little do you realise that you are standing on the very ground where Socrates was tried, sentenced and also given the poison to drink . Awesome place reminds us of the excellent skills the Greeks possesses in almost all areas. A must... More

This walk around tour is one you will not want to miss!!! One of the best walking tours of the Ancient City of Agora. You can take your time just walking over the whole site. There are no sidewalk but just pathways for you to just wonder around. If you bought a ticket to the Acropolis do not throw this... More

The Roman Agora is an amazing first-hand experience of ancient Athens, a wonderful melange of history and nature, the afternoon colours of the Agora are unique. You can combine the visit with a relaxing afternoon in the lovely neighbourhood Thissio, wheer you can enjoy a coffee right under the Acripolis.

I personally find the Roman Agora rather uninteresting, especially compared to other sights in Athens - however, since the Acropolis combined ticket includes entrance here, there is no reason not to visit. A half-hour is probably enough.

They are rebuilding it and just to sit down and think about all the history that went on here is amazing. Socrates and Plato hung out here daily. This was a place of community, educational, and political gatherings that would have been a delight to see. Small fee to get in and you could be by yourself as its not... More

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.
