  • "Museum of the ancient Agora" is a quick visit. You can still see beautiful works.

  • The Museum of the Agora is a hidden gem, there are few visitors but it has some pieces that are worth a visit. Personally I was struck by the Ostraca and the Spartan Shield taken after the victory at Pilo (see photo). From upstairs you can enjoy a beautiful view of the temple of Hephaestus

  • Amazing location with a very nice monument, fully intact. Park is very nice with a walkway with lots of statues with signs to tell you what each one is, nice church that you can enter, and a mini Parthenon? Great views of the acropolis from below and staff very nice and helpful. Gift shop with souvenirs and drinks in case you get thirsty. Great place to visit and in my opinion Better than the acropolis
  • Surreal place and such a lovely vibe roaming around the area taking in all its beauty. Definitely get yourselves down there, I recommend getting the 30€ ticket as this is included and also a top tip. Get the ticket from anywhere but the acropolis as you'll save some time and effort queuing up!
  • A peaceful place to have a walk and admire the ruins if ancient Greek central market. The place is full of trees, ruins and the gorgeous temple of Hephaestus. The view of Acropolis and the Parthenon is also great. A must do for tourism but also a great idea for a walk with good companion!
  • Impressively large complex that is apart of the €30 combined Acropolis ticket. I didn't know much about in advance but it turned out to be 1 of my favourite places in ancient Athens. There is a small museum, a big temple and a lot more. There is good information listed throughout. It's amazing how much history happened here. You definitely should add it to your list with must visit places in Athens.
  • This place is amazing! When you stay in Athens, make sure and give time to explore the Ancient Agora! The birthplace of Democracy, the aforementioned gives great insight to how city Life would look and feel. There is great information at all the different structures and monuments. Look for the Palace of the Giants! It's truly humbling to walk through such amazing history. This is a must see, must do.
