Just a short walk down the path from the Acropolis, the Agora is a place one would want to visit after doing one's research and pre-reading. There's a lot of history to take in here, and many structures are of great historical significance (such as the Tholos, residence of the administrators of the world's first democracy; the Boulouterion, which was the world's first Senate, etc.).
Nearby (ie within the same compound) is the Agora Museum, where you'll find the stele that was created to declare Athens a democracy, a shard of pottery that was a citizen's vote in favour of the motion to ostracize the famous physician Hippocrates, and other such objects of historical significance.
Ticket price: included in the 12 euro ticket that you purchase at the top of the Acropolis.
Average visit duration: 60-120 minutes, depending on the level of detail you want to cover!
Tip: Keep an eye on the grassy banks and pathways while you walk between the structures - there are wild turtles living in the area, you just might be able to spot some!
