This and many other sites closed around 3:00 pm, which is quite inconvenient. The location is on the hill between the Acropolis and the flea market. Every time we walked this area a guy would come up and say "Peace and Love, Hakuna Matada" and try putting a bracelet on peoples wrists and hope they would pay for it.

Another must see and take your time to walk around to see every nook and cranny. Romans were definitely influenced by the Greeks as the two architectural details and stone compositions are co-mingled. Life in this active town had to be grand as the Acropolis stands majestically above the Agora. Breathtaking!

This is where Socrates walked and taught the youth of Athens the meaning of life. Yes, what remains are ruins of the ancient agora but written guides abound and a student of history and philosophy can imagine how life was in ancient times. This is an amazing tourist attraction and a must see.

A huge site with a lot of historical buildings, in particular stoa. Since a lot of tourists only visit the Acropolis the Agora is a quiet and peaceful place. Unfortunately the Greek built the metroline through the Agora.

Wonderful place to absorb the history of ancient Athens. Walk the area frequented by Pericles, Alcybiades and Plato. See the remains of the old prison where Sokrates drank the fatal hemlock. This is a marvellous historic and relaxing area in the centre of bustling Athens.

Enjoyed the museum. The artifacts helped me understand how accent people lived. The ruin itself doesn't help my brain connect. This is in the old town, so it's nice to visit.
