So our hotel was practically across the street from this attraction and yet because we would head left from our hotel we almost mossed it. We saw it only hours before we left for the airport! It's beautiful and well maintained..a great hike to take before getting on a plane! Do not miss the museum. It's not huge, but has... More

This was a really cool site for me to visit, just to see the difference between the Greek agora and Roman forum. The tour guide who recommended it to us upsold the museum a bit, but it was still good to see that. There is very little (if any) information about the site spread throughout, so you will definitely have... More

Getting to Ancient Agora is one of the major points as far as the historical attractions are concerned! Although not many of the ruins are well kept here, it gives you a good insight into ancient everyday life. The renovated South Stoa gives you a glimpse of how magnificent and outstanding this ancient architecture was!

A great place to see how the ancient city was organized based on the government and life styles of the day. Check out the museum. (Part of the Acropolis combo ticket.)

Fourth day into our Athens trip by now we have seen far too many ruins . But this is still interesting because the Temple of Hephaestus is still standing with roof intact. The reconstructed town building is also very well done . The museum had many interesting relics to show how advance the Greek people were.

While everything about Athens is historic and amazing the Agora is not to be missed. As the birthplace of democracy and cradle of philosophic thought...to walk in the footsteps of the brilliant minds of Hellenic civilization is an amazing experience.Reaf a bit before hand or join a tour in order to fully appreciate the glory of the Greeks.

This is a wonderful hike through history, the levels of history are peeled back as you walk among the ruins and imagine their daily routine of life. The museum should not be missed it has some wonderful artifacts of jewelry and pottery illustrating the advanced ness of these societies, especially the voting system and jury selection, most interesting!

Situated inside the ancient agora, the Temple of Hephaestus is a magnificently preserved example of an Ancient Greek temple. The reconstructed Stoa of Attalos also gives visitors an idea of how this area must have looked over two thousand years ago. Well worth a visit!

Lots to see ... very peaceful and just chocked full of history. We spent several hours walking around the beautiful grounds of Ancient Agora. Don't forgot to go 'fully' from top to bottom and left to right; at risk of missing the beautiful hill top temple with excellent views all round.
