The various building and sights inside were very interesting with a a small museum inside the Stoa. Lots of information to read. Admission is free for students so remember your student card!

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.
