“Another must-see”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Agora is certainly a must-see. You will feel like you really did hop back into time as you scroll the square and the remnants of important public buildings...slowly reaching the Temple of Heracle, which is very well preserved, standing proudly on top of the hill...grandious and kind of romantic at the same time...

“Try to get a guide to take you through”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

A fascinating area which gives you a clearer insight into how people lived in those ancient days.

We went without a tour guide and felt that someone pointing out things and telling us about what we were looking at, would have been definitely better than the guide books that they sell at the gates as they have WAY too much information to be able to read through and see at the same time.

“Forgotten by the Gods (and the Greek state).”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

THE place that gave birth to what we call the Golden Age of Greece.
Its a pity that they don't show the VR of the Agora (that is shown 5-6 KM to the South at the "Hellenic Cosmos" Museum - it's not as good as their Miletus show, but still you get a good feeling about the Agora - Don't miss!).

“A quiet respite”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

I thought this was a wonderful and picturesque place in the city. For me, the Temple of Hephaistos was the highlight, being more 'complete' than the parthenon. The museum was really interesting. It was a very enjoyable experience just to walk around the ancient buildings, or to sit and sketch.

“The Agora - Best Preserved Temple”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

The agora is located below the Acropolis. It includes one of the best preserved temples in Athens -Temple of Hephaestus. The Agora is filled with Incredible views and loads of history. Take a walk where Socrates and Plato once trod...amazing to think we did.
