If you dont like crowds, high pressured sales or a bait and switch fruit vendor, stay away from this densely packed market with a wide range of restaurants and shops. The cobblestone streets challenge walkers with canes. You can find traditional Greek spices, jewellery, donkey...More

After zigzagging through Athens to find it, you'll end up at the Agora, which is a surprisingly well preserved ancient site. Places like this act like a time machine and we get a small sample of what life and the city was like all those...More

Most of the archaeological sites show the big temples and theaters, but this is more of a town. It's interesting to see how they lived in this time period from this perspective. There is so much to see here, you can tell that they don't...More

Ancient agora was a place of gathering of people. They made political decisions here, exchange news, had shopping and relaxed. This place is full of ancient ruins, each stone was a part of ancient life and history is everywhere. Don't miss it

While the Acropolis is the sight to see, the Ancient Agora is a close 2nd. It is a much easier walk, lots to see and had plenty of benches and shade! The museum on site has some fabulous artifacts on display. We used 1 of...More

This was the old city of Athens and was where democracy started. There is not the people here that are on the Acropolis so you aren;t crowded. The ruins aren't as majestic as the Acropolis either.

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

My previous reply did not include the museum on the grounds. Another hour to really get the most out of the museum would be best. It has interesting items you won’t see anywhere else. Look for the hemlock cups used to... More
