Loved this temple in the agora - very well preserved, you can walk right around it and you can see both the inner and outer columns. There are a few steps to climb up to it, but very manageable. Wonderful!

A spot that you should not miss. It is close to the museums and to the center. Also you can take very nice photos. The place is magical.

This is the best preserved temple in Athens, or in Greece for that matter. It is well worth a visit to the Ancient Agora to see.

As part of the Acropolis Complex, to visit this site is a must. Do with a knowledgeable guide. Otherwise you only see a lot of pilled stones. Take your time in identifying the details.

It took a a little time to figure out how this tour to Athens would work. With limited time and a penchant for seeing a few things in depth - rather than a quick glance and moving forward - we had to choose well. We...More

It stands there with all its Glory. It is not something you can miss when you are strolling in the ancient agora, but the agora is worth going just to see this temple.

The Temple was built about 430 BC and remains a beautiful example of ancient construction. While you cannot walk inside the structure, you can walk around it to see the decorative frizes that surround much of the temple.

that still has its own roof. This temple is almost completely intact. During my last trip in 1975, I only saw this temple from afar, so I really wanted to see it close up this trip. It was worth it!

Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street

No. You should have bought the 30€ ticket which gives entry to six sites.
