I dug here as an excavating and budding archaeology student and I must say, the Agora has to be on everyone's itinerary for visiting Athens. Not only to you get to see the Stoa and what used to be the hub of ancient Athens but...More

The Agora is a great place to be immersed in history from all sides.. the road that leads to the edifice is also worth it.

This is just a short walk from acropolis and is where ancient Greeks hang out. I think it's worth a visit if you have time and energy (assuming you visit acropolis first).

Awesome handmade goodies to be found, I bought a steam-powered tin boat for €5 for my boy and lots of 925certified trinkets for me! Good vibe, friendly stall holders, watch out for pick pockets

Great stroll through the birthplace of democracy. Get a real sense for everyday Athenian life - even if you have to use your imagination a bit. The restored western stoa is a real sight to behold, as well as the temple of Hephaestus.

Yes. The Agora costs 8€ if you don't buy the combination ticket for the Acropolois which is 30€. Open 8 to 7 every day.
