The good ting about this monument is that is within the city and is surrounded by the new city. U can have a nice lunch at the Plaka area and then u can have a small visit at Agora.....

Free for EU students (Win!) and great shelter from the heat. Lovely park with many things to see, we were lucky there weren't many people, nice place to chill. Temple of Hephaestus is very very impressive, you can go very close and we liked it much more than the Parthenon (no cranes!). There is also the Agora museum inside the long Stoa.Recommended.

I would have liked to have spent more time here, but we were rushed to just snap a few photos since they closed the whole area at 3pm!

Another one of the !2 Euro 6 package. The building and its contents even blew my wife away and she isn't a history buff. Watch the entrance timings we were caught out

Visit this place with an audio guide(Rick Steve recommended). You will enjoy a walk in ancient Athens in company of Aristotle & Plato. Enlightening to know about shopping malls, democracy & lifestyle in ancient Greece.
