It was a bit of an interesting walk around the Agora getting a feel for it. The size seems small, but for the buildings that used to be present here. The two main attractions are the museum inside and the temple on the hill. Those...More

We went without a tour guide and good thing we did. There wasn't much in it to see. Lots of supposedly ruins which you will have to imagine what it would have looked like. I probably wouldn't bother with this place if you're in a...More

I would say this is worth a visit if you have time. You can either choose to enter and walk around the sites for a fee or walk around the fenced area for free.

A great find for a Roman ruins in Greece and Athens. It is a little off the beaten path, but I took a foot path from the Acropolis and make this find. It was another example of great history in a great city of Athens.

The day we visited, it was just too unbearable to wander through this sight. I had visited before 7 years ago. The museum in the Stoa houses some interesting artifacts including chips of pottery used for voting, a cabinet like box used for jury selection...More

Before you go to the Agora in Athens, download Rick Steves' tours app. This is an excellent way to navigate through this wondrous site. I don't work for Rick Steves or know Rick Steves, but I can tell you as a consumer, Steves' audio walking...More

Yes. The Agora costs 8€ if you don't buy the combination ticket for the Acropolois which is 30€. Open 8 to 7 every day.
