“Free with Acropolis Ticket”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Worth it if you are exploring Athens a little deeper than just the Acropolis. I don't understand the negative reviews for this site. I thought it was a good site. And, the Tower of the Winds is great.

“Not much to see except the Tower of winds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

If you don't have time, this will be easy to pass. But if you have just 20mn you could visit at least the tower of winds since the Roman forum is on the way between Acropolis and Agora. And included in the Acropolis ticket.

“Just ruins”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Not very much to see...probably the most interesting thing is The Tower of the Winds - a little octogonal tower,stone made and the only building pretty well preserved.As for the rest,only spreaded stones,the ruins of a monumental gate and other a few some half broken-downcolumns.

“fragmented site with interesting features”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Apart from the astronomical building at the Northern end, the so called "temple of the winds", and at the southern end, the impressive Gate of Athena Archegetes, However this is a very fragmented site, with numerous scattered remains, most of which are difficult to interpret.
As with many sites there is a lack of detail.
It remains an interesting look at 2000 year old history, One bonus to visiting this site is the superb uninterrupted views of the South edge of the Acropolis, and for this alone it is worth your time.

“Roman ruins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Right near the plaka is worth going to see for the Tower of the Winds. Part of the group attraction ticket, so take an hour out of your day to enjoy this hidden gem.
