Ancient Agora of Athens.

A very interesting site. It was quite a walk round the pathway from the Acropolis area to get there, but well worth it.

The Ancient Agora in Athens in a must-see along with the Acropolis. There are Roman statues among ancient Greek monuments as well. While the Ancient Greek statues are mostly ruins at this point, it is still unique and mystical to put yourself in the shoes of an Athenian and imagine walking around the ancient marketplace!

It's the archaeological site of ancient temples, the Odeion of Agrippa, and temple of Mars, and is located on the foothills of the Acropolis; it was an important political, cultural and religious centre; The Athenians at this time buy and sell theirr goods here and exchange ideas and news.

It can not be compared to Acropoli but it is a nice visit. I liked both the temple of Apollo and the museum.

Not much ruins left, so you don't have much to see. Spend money rather on some local food or clothes.

This site gets you in to see one of the best preserved temples in Athens and a restored stoa (the big long two level building with lots of columns. This was the center of city life where everyday life occurred in ancient times. Shops, businessmen, entertainment, etc. This is where people would come to buy offerings before climbing up to...

Take a walk and feel the ancient vibe. On the hot and sunny day, find a bench under the tree, enjoy the shade and relax :)

The Temple inside is in excellent condition. You can visit this site with the more expensive acropolis ticket costing 30 euro for 5 days. Start here as the queue is almost non existing compared to the one and a half hour queue at acropolis Hope this helps!
