Final chance to wander so a quick trip back to the Agora which has become my favourite place in this city. This really is a little haven of quiet in bustling Athens with its shading trees and almost empty walkways where you can find amongst...More

I paid a small fee to enter the Ancient Greek Agora and spent approximately 3 hours walking around exploring the ruins. These date back to the 4th century BC. It was wonderful. I would recommend you pay to see these.

It was just amazing to walk in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks! It’s good to first read or listen about the Agora to understand the significance of what one is seeing. I found an online audio guide which was very helpful. It’s spread in...More
