The temple is the Acient Agora site. It stands out as the large structure on the hill. It is an amazing example of Greek architecture. It is very interesting to see and imagine how thesewere constructed so long ago.

We purchased the multi-venue pass for 30 euros and thoroughly enjoyed wandering this site. to be honest we stumbled upon it as we headed elsewhere and spent a good hour — our photos are some of my favorite from the trip.

An amazing place to visit and feel its aura. Highly recommended. A beautiful stroll around the area for a quick bite after visiting is also definitely a must do! Have fun

I wife and I took a four day city break in Athens and this was definitely one of the highlights. It is one of the very few original temples that stands complete as it was built. We also found two wild tortoises bumbling about nearby!...More

What a wonderful treat to see this temple. Worth the price of the agora ticket itself. A true classic. Enjoyed seeing this — very picturesque. Definitely not as crowded as the acropolis. You can even get pictures without any other people in them. Odd experience...More

Acropolis is good, so is Temple of Poseiden at Sunion, but both are nothing but a few upright columns. This one is almost complete.

Allow plenty of time to explore. The temple itself is impressive, and pretty intact. The whole site has great views of the Acropolis. There are lots of restaurants right outside the gate and in the couple blocks to Monastiraki.

I saw this from the Acropolis and couldn't wait to get over to see it. It's every bit as majestic and beautiful as the Parthenon, just on a smaller scale. It seemed much more intimate though, as you could get much closer go it. A...More

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
