One of the Athens landmark. Thousand years of history back to Byzantium era. When visiting these houses, shops, Churches and a mosque, I felt like walking in the history. Thousand years later, will you still feel the prosperous business in this old agora.

Even though not much remains at the site and what is left is pretty small, I would still recommend going to this site. The temple of the winds has been renovated and the public can now go inside to have a look. The site is constantly being upgraded so that the public is better able to move around without damaging...

if you bought the 30 euro tickets to visit several archaeological sites, this is one of the spots. there is not much to see but this site is quite a significant area not far from the Ancient Agora. You can see the entire area from just outside the fence. It is not worth for an individual ticket. I

you can view it from outside as the only thing of note to see is the tower of the winds.comes with your combined acropolis ticket but if you dont have one of those save yourself the entrance fee...its only 3 euros but a couple and a child makes it expensive to not see very much

Not the largest ruins but worth a visit as nestled under the acropolis just up from the library of Hadrian, close to the Hard Rock Cafe if you want to visit

This is a very famous part of the city and gives you and idea of how ancient Athens might have been. It is also one of the best restaurant areas in Athens.

This square, which is actually a rectangle is just beneath the Parthenon. As with a lot of historic sites there's not much left standing except the first water clock so of interest just for that if not for the fact it is an ancient site.

This was included as one of our seven sites that came with our Acropolis ticket and is a short walk from the Acropolis, with several nearby restaurants for lunch. Tower of the Winds makes this a must see.

It's easy to visit and included in combined ticket, so we give it a go. Not too much has left, it takes around 10 minutes at most to see all. Definitely not a must.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
