We went to see the Agora today and we were really amazed by the wonderful sight of Smyrna.

Easily accessible by foot from the Izmir Hilton, the Agora Open Air Museum offers an impressive view of ruins of ancient Smyrna. We highly recommend the experience.

I went there alone and was awestruck by how beautiful and old these ruins were. Gives perspective, what will we leave behind.

While walking in we were confronted with numerous packs of wild.dogs that got very aggressive and were roaming the ruins. Seeing the ruins from the outside they were unimpressive and paled in comparison to other better preserved ruins one can see throughout the country and surrounding region.

Visited this as part of cruise itinerary - only about 10 euros entry - amazing historical relics and also you can see the archaeologists digging - our guide was very knowledgeable and painted a picture very well of life in the Agora. Only problem was the lack of shade at 30 degrees - still worth a visit !!
