Had bought the 30 euro ticket, entrance to the Roman Agora/Tower of the Winds was included. Not much to see, hardly any signage. Tower of the Winds is interesting, but that is essentially it.

If you happen to be passing by (and have bought the 30€ ticket which allows you entry to the Roman Agora) I would recommend that you pop in for 10 minutes, as that’s all you need to see and read everything in the Roman Agora....More

It seems not worth to pay in order to get in. If you are around, a glimpse from outside certainly seems enough.

It is decent stretch of land with the ruins of what must have been a bustling center of human activity during the Roman conquest of Greece. One can imagine politicians, philosophers, actors strutting their stuff; and of course the market shops around. Visit the Tower...More

I was pleasantly surprised when I went to the Roman Agora as I didn't think their would be much. Some of the old ruins are amazing! It's also great to see the diagrams of what the place would have looked like back when everything was...More

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
