The Ancient agora contains beautiful and well preserved buildings (including Temple of Hesphaestus and the Stoa of attalos). The museum in the stoa has beautiful sculptures, including Roman ones. For the cheap price (8 euros), it is well worth a visit

Clost to O&B Hotel... Stoa well preserved. Very touristy... not a surprise since this is a must see when in Athens.

This is really the true Athens - the birthplace of Democracy. The Acropolis is wonderful, but that was just for show. Here you can understand what occurred iduring the Golden Age of Athens. Make sure you visit the Agora Museum. I would also suggest you download an audio guide from the internet to get the most from your tour of... More

since the Acropolis is a must see in Athens it's really crowded. so if your smart you buy a combination ticket (not available at Acropolis but it's available at museum etc.) And then visit this quiet park with the stunning temple the Agora. Really relaxing and a lot of sitting areas with nice views. (Also good if you like to... More

This was a nice place to stroll through and rest from time to time. It was like a park but with cool stuff to read and learn about. There is a beautiful little church in one corner and other things to visit scattered throughout. The Temple of Hephaestus and Atoa of Attalos (including a little museum) are contained within the...

Different from agora romana this is a big park with a museum inside and old buildings from the old ages. I was very impress by the small church inside the park. I recommend to finish the visit in one of the adrianus streets restaurants, having either a beer or a cold coffee.

This was an interesting site. Old ruins. Not very crowded at all. A peaceful respite from some of the hustle and bustle in other parts of Athens.

Also known as the Forum of Athens, is one of the city's most important archeological sites. Today, the ruins are regarded as the best preserved example of Ancient Greek agora standing to the northwest of the acropolis between the help of Areopagus and Kolonus Agoraios. Today, the fragments of the once glorious marketplace provide important clues to the economic centre... More
