Growing on myth methodology and being a history buff I can’t even start to explain the feeling sharing the artifacts with my children. My only complaint is that most of the grounds are not wheelchair accessible so my wife was denied accesss to some areas.

The walk in the ancient agora (forum) of Athens resembles that of a time travel back to its glory times. And by glory times we mean the era between 5th century BC (classical Greek antiquity) and 1st century AC (Roman domination). The buildings and ruins...More

You can visit it but in my opinion it is not a must. The ruins of old trading area but not so much left.

Part of the ruin preserve around the acropolis. Not much solid left, but a nice open space in a very crowded city.

The history, the views and the atmosphere all absolutely enchanting. After you've finished, go for an ice cream or a meal at the many lovely cafes and restaurants in Montesaraki!

I love the agora, but I know what I am looking for, so do gen-up on the site before you visit or have a guide take you around. It can be very confusing - much like the Roman Forum - unless you know what you...More

There's not much you can do about the early closing times in Athens during the winter months except to make the effort to try and get up early. If you don't then you'll just have to prioritise those sights which you see versus those sites...More

This is a wonderful peaceful place. The near-intact temple is stunning as are the wild gardens around it. In spring, it is a beautiful green spot with wild flowers and the odd tortoise crawling around here and there! It is a break from the hustle...More

The streets are pretty narrow here, better to skip cars and taxis. There a few shops adjacent to this spot selling souvenirs in the form of sculptures, photos, etc. We also have a number of food outlets here. Located in close proximity to the Monastiraki...More

Large archaeological site in the centre of Athens, worth visiting but the highlight is the small museum on the same site.

Whether or not it's allowed I don't know. However, considering how dry and windy it is, it wouldn't be conscientious the thing to do.

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.
