I love to wander around the ruins of the agora - it doesn't feel crowded or busy, there's shade under the trees or in the stoa and you have a lovely view right up to the Acropolis uninterrupted by modern buildings. I've always preferred the...More

We found the Agora to be interesting, but not really too exciting. The high point, of course, is the very well-preserved temple on the hill. The Stoa was a disappointment. I seem to remember something different the last time I was here 13 years ago....More

Is a must in Athens, specially if you know something or you really like mythology, I recommend to go very early otherwise is full of people and impossible to take good photos

The Agora is beautiful - when I went it was quite hot, but it was still nice to walk through the ruins. The Stoa is amazing and offers amazing views from the top level. The Temple of Hephastus is definitely a must see too!

Great place to visit lots to see although be careful in the hear. Not over redeveloped which enables you to feel the past effectively.

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.
