On the way down from The Acropolis is the Ancient Agora on the northwest slope of the hill. Lots of interesting ruins and artifacts to see. Also check out the museum there. It may be small but has some interesting artifacts inside it as well.

This completely took us by surprise, the story, the views and atmosphere were breathtaking. If you want to explore and be able to enjoy some shade this is the place to be.

We downloaded the Rick Steves audioguide and used that while we were exploring. The museum has a couple neat things and there is a beautiful temple. Make sure you have some idea of what you are seeing so it is a little more interesting than looking at old rocks.

Definitely my favorite place in Athens. Of course the Acropolis is a must see/do but this is the next level. A walk through such garden so full of history is simply fascinating. Do take your time and rest in this amazing place, plus the Museum has amazing pieces in perfect conservation from the -3500 BC at least. The single Acropolis'entrance... More

How can someone go to Athens and not visit the Ancient Agora? Once the political and judicial center and also the hub of daily life of the ancient Greeks, one just cannot miss out on the opportunity to walk in their footsteps. Just imagine how ancient philosophers like Socrates, Plato and Aristotle once walked on the same rocky roads and... More

I think that having some sort of a guide when you visit the agent Agoura absolutely essential. I highly recommend Rick Steves audio tour in order to get the most out of your visit. You have to imagine what it would have been like year thousands of years ago. The stoa houses even really interesting collection of antiquities.

We spent a couple of hours here one morning. If you take the path up the short hill, you will be treated to a bench under a tree, along with an amazing view, which is a real treat on a scorching day!

We visited the Ancient Agora in the afternoon so it was pretty hot. There were very few people there so it was easy to walk around and view the archeological site. We walked all the way to the temple which is well preserved and worth looking at. The small museum had some interesting artifacts and was much cooler so it... More
