While not as half as interesting as the ancient Agora, the Roman Agora is still worth a visit, if only to see the Tower of the winds (when its ongoing renovation is done). Tickets are 3 Euros per adult, but you are better getting the combo 12 Euros ticket, that'll allow you to visit 7 archeological sites. 15 minutes here... More

This certainly wasn't the most impressive place we went to in Athens, but we were glad we stopped. It doesn't take much time and easy to reach from the Agora.

The Roman Agora is one of the most-visited places in Athens, and it remains until today a well-preserved historical site with plenty of insights into the past offered. It also houses the Tower of Winds within its boundaries.

Surprisingly, the Roman centre of Athens doesn't get much by way of tourist coverage (the forum is not even marked on some tourist maps) but there are some really interesting things to see. The site, near the Monasteraki district, includes the remains of the Roman marketplace, an Ottoman period mosque and some public latrines! When we visited, much of it... More

In the heart of Athens I couldn't believe there could be such a fantastic stroll. The ancient agora (forum), the god Ifaistos temple and the entire area with the ancient ruins impressed me deeply. The area around the agora was also very impressive. As you walk in the graphic alleys of monastiraki and plaka ancient ruins almost jump out in... More

Beautifully preserved ancient agora next to Monastiraki metro station and close proximity to Acropolis and many many restaurants nearby.

Long walk from Acropolis but more amazing ruins and statues everywhere. The Stoas were a surprise as they had completely restored one to display all the statues. It would be better if they restored it so you could see how the Agora's operated.

On Adrianou St (Monastiraki) you will find the Roman agora and the tower of the winds. All over the place, and also outside, on the streets, you will see the traces of our ancient history. This Agora was built 100 years BC, placed quite near of the Ancient Agora, improved during Hadrian domination. The intention was to move the social... More

otherwise it's just and old ruins and rubble. Like most of Athens ruin, we can't fully understand / recreate the building in our head. Luckily this agora is situated near other site and the plaka - so no time wasted, just drop by when you're in the neighborhood
