We visited as part of the 7 sites ticket. Incredible how so much damage caused since it was constructed. Even more impressive how it was actually built.

The origins of Western philosophy and democracy are here. On a glorious sunny but cool day, we walked among marble columns and visited the Temple of Winds. Beneath the Acropolis, this was worth the walk down and back. A must see. If you are visiting...More

Plan to spend at least one to two hours walking around this historic site. It has a lot of different sites to marvel at. Around it there are lots of cafes and tavernas. Bring your walking shoes.

As with all the historic sights of Athens this is a must see with its Tower of the Winds. It is quite a large area with many interesting ruins.

I liked this more than Acropolis. It gives you a chance to get a glimpse into ancient anthena. It is always less crowded than Acropolis and is relatively flat.

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.
