This is a part of the Agora. We went there before visiting Acropolis. Amazing site, great pictures. Definitely worth going.

This is the best preserved ancient temple in Athens. It sits on a hill surrounded by greenery and looks absolutely amazing.

Everything I had read about and more. It and the Agora were wonderful. The Apostle Paul spent time here which made it more meaningful to me

Very nice conservated small temple near the Ancient Agora. You should visit after the Acropolis because it's quite near.
