“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Take a relaxed morning to slowely explore the site and try to imagine what it used to be. Not much is left as it used to be, but you can get a good impression of its magnificence in its days.

“Trod the ground that Socrates, Aristotle and Plato walked on!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

The Ancient Agora (not be mistaken for Roman Agora) was the commercial and political centre of ancient Athens. The main attractions here are Stoa of Attilus which houses a museum and the Temple of Hephaestus. This temple is the best preserved pagan temple in the world. This place is a must visit with a good guide. Entrance is included in the tciket to Acropolis.
