A beautiful area, make sure you bring walking shoes! The area was quite dusty, but this is typical of the time of year I visited. Will be back!

An ancient Greek temple, well preservent with some great samples of artefacts and statues. Early in the morning is nice, but after 1100 am gets too crowdy and hot.

This is a beautiful temple in the Ancient Agora, beautifully proportioned, situated in a serene garden setting. It is a very relaxing place to visit.

A very special experience to behold . Do not leave Athens without seeing this and learning of its original purpose and it's glory in ancient Greek times. Still extremely intact and a very handsome testimonial to Greek skill.

A doric temple so well preserved and so beautiful when the night falls and it is illuminated. The whole ancient agora is a masterpiece and a must-see of course.
