Top ways to experience Roman Agora
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
How to get there
  • Monastiraki • 3 min walk
  • Akropoli • 4 min walk

It was OK, there are a few old columns left but there are better sites in the area (the ancient agora). Entrance is included in a 30 E combination ticket to the ancient agora and the acropolis.

Compared with other sites there is not a lot to see and a lot of imagination is required. In common with other sites there is a large number of stacked columns and stones to the side to keep archaeologists busy for decades to come. Not the first site in Athens where open fencing means you can look in free of charge so not sure what actually entering adds to the visit unless you have the combined €30 ticket.

Certainly worth going in if you have the combined ticket. It’s a small site with ruins and the Temple of the Winds. You would be able to see the whole site from walking around the edge, but glad I went in if only to be able to have a closer look at the temple of the winds.

The market place where everything happened in ancient Athens, built in the 6th century BC. A great place to wonder and sit in the shade to let your mind try to figure out the site, to think about who and what happened in the long gone past.

The train's going past at the front of the site is not the best thing i have seen. Makes you wonder what they destroyed to lay the track !

One of the smaller sites we visited but still worth seeing some of the structures left on the site. Nice to see some of the Roman influence on Athens.

Easy access from metro station and Monastraki Square. Purchase a ticket for EUR30 that gives you access to about seven different sites including this one. Naturally, there is not a lot left but this link to the Roman past of Athens is a key part of the city's history. Use your imagination a bit. Easy walking and can look through and take photos in 30 minutes.

Very nice. It was on the combined ticket along with many other sites, and we enjoyed a short visit here. We got our money's worth with that combined ticket and love ancient sites so this was a great short visit while seeing other things nearby in Athens.

We had paid an extremely good value for money price of €30.00 to enable us to visit seven archeological sites within the City. Roman Agora being one of them and once again the history shines through as you roam the various ruins. Yet another great piece of History and worth every cent…..once you find the Entrance.

We eventually found the entrance to the Roman Agora after walking all the way around the perimeter and having taken pictures from outside decided that it did not warrant the admission fee to enter the ruins. However we did get some good shots of the ruins.
