Temple and site amazing. Staff working there were unbelievably rude to tourists. Followed around site by one particular staff member who kept screaming abuse at us.

Its not a must see if you have been to the Parthenon. Looks pretty alike. Not to much information around it either. However, it is central and cheap, so drop in if you have the time and love temples.

This is the highlight of the whole area of Ancient Agora. A fabulous ancient temple that stands on a hill. The whole of Ancient Agora requires at least 1 hour but the temple is the must-see attraction here

It is amazing how this temples preserve their essence with minimum restoration. You really feel like walking in the past! And wonder how would it be if you can live the whole experience!

All over Athens there are so many old ruins. All have a good history about them. Some large some small but all different. Make a list and visit as many or as few as you like.

Monastiraki
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
