This is the place to visit to get away from the crowd. Being basically in the centre of Athens, it was a quiet place to walk around. Many intersting structures and a lot of history amongst the ruins, but pleasantly free from tourists. Not much...More

An interesting historical site, but I'm not sure you will see a lot more than just walking around the outside / looking through the fence.

Very preserved temple. Take a map and read something about this place on a guidebook before visiting. Bring a hat and bottle of water. Museum is only average.

Interesting historical place. While there think about the great philosophers of Ancient Greece who used to stroll along the agora.

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.
