A nice place for a walk and a look around, especially with a guide book. A little more care wouldn't go astray to look after the ruins, like most outdoor collections in Athens, this also looks weed infested and poorly signposted but the ruins are...More

Site was more secluded and in a "wooded" area at far end of the Agra. You could get close to it and could easily walk around it. Well-preserved and although it isn't that different from other ruins, it somehow felt different as it was more...More

Visiting this temple is like going back in time. It is in the heart of Athens, yet isolated in the ancient agora garden. Totally worth the walk.

Ancient Agora and Temple of Hephaestus offer a good head start for Greek archaeologist enthusiast. The temple is one of the best preserved / maintained and less crowded compared to Parthenon. Worth visiting!

Very cool to see a temple that managed to survive in quiet intact shape to our times. Lots of shrubs, trees and flowers all around. Peaceful and nice at least in november.

The temple is nice, and on one side you can see the 10 labors of Hercules. The view of the Acropolis view is nice

The largely intact state of this monument makes one understand the structure and purpose of an ancient temple with great clarity. Furthermore, it is the highlight of the Greek Agora, a vast archaeological area which is fascinating in its own right. If you stroll through...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
