The best part about this one is the Parthenon style building (forgot the name) that sits on a small hill. The pictures that show what this site would have been help you visualise it much better then what is still standing

You can't go to Athens and not hike up to see the athenian Agora site - it's just too symbolic. We went at 11am and already there were a few hundred people there. Still, totally worth it. May be a good idea to get the...More

Well organized information. It doesn´t feel as overwhelming. Nice grounds to walk on. It has a good and original feeling of history. You can see them still excavating there. It´s big=people spread=not so crowded.

This archeological site is below the Acropolis and is much less crowded. The ruins are of the ancient agora, public buildings and market.

Lots here, well marked out. The really good bits, though, are the Museum and the Temple of Hepaestus. We looks around the Agora a little between these 2 delights. It is another interesting example of how bits change and are reused over the eons. After...More

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.
