Again I must mention how grateful we were for using Rick Steves Audio tour here. He, along with his audio partner Lisa - verbally paint a picture as you stroll throughout the ruins. You can just about see the throngs of people that must have come to this ancient city centre so long ago. As well as imagine the wafting... More

Great place to visit for only 4 euros. It's a big site so you can walk around for a while, the view on the Acropolis from next to the temple on the hill is really impressive, Also the rebuilt stoa is very impressive of course.

My knowledge of Ancient Greece is fairly woeful except for some light reading before my trip to Athens, and so I know I didn't get anywhere near as much out of sites such as the Ancient Agora as some might. However, despite that, it's a lovely place to visit. We paid 4 euros entrance fee each instead of the advertised... More

Think I loved the Agora more than the Acropolis. It is so atmospheric, wandering round the site, trying to imagine life in what was the bustling heart of Ancient Athens. Walking in the footsteps of Socrates. One for the ancient history buffs. Wear comfy footwear, The site is quite ramshackle with lots of loose stones etc. Don't miss the small... More

Firstly, Ancient Agora will take you a while, the area is huge and there is a lot of ground to cover and a lot to take in and see. It is not ideal for very young children or anyone not interested in ancient history but, if you are, it is well worth the visit. Secondly, I went in March, am... More

1. Purchased the all site inclusive ticket for €30. And on that note, my guidebook must have been out of date because the €14 acropolis and agora ticket doesn't seem to exist anymore. 2. Allowed more time to explore, it's a large area. It closes at 3pm. 3. Paid for a tour. I feel my guidebook didn't do it justice.

If you know your local history you'll know that this was the city centre in the era of the great Greek orators and politicians. However you'll really need to use your imagination because nothing has been done to make this historic site in the slightest bit user friendly. You'll see a series of dusty ruins over run with weeds. It's... More

The ruins of the ancient Agora were used as the centre of Athenian government, political and public life.When you walk through it, it gives you an insight into the heart of ancient Athens
