What a wonderful calm place in the middle of athens but all the statues had no heads, and no explanation. Found it a bit bizarre but well worth a visit

This Place of Interest was in the city centre with Monastraiki being the nearest Metro station. Loads of nice pictures at this attraction. Nominally priced entry tickets. Visited by thousands of tourists every year !. No hike involved.

This is the best preserved ancient Greek temple. Located in the Ancient Agora. Unfortunately, it can only be viewed from the outside, they do not let them see inside. Definitely worth the visit.

This temple is still in a quite good status and show you the architecture of Greece. If you know how the people had to build this, your mouth falls open

On Sundays this is free to go round and the surrounding gardens with the temple of Apollo. Amazing and most intact temple in Athens, amazing stonework which you can get right up to. Well worth a visit.

Part of the ancient agora, lovely to see. Up a small hill, not to strenuous a walk. Again, an audioguide will help explain the historic significance

Part of the ancient agora, a wonderful place to walk and enjoy. It’s the one you get closer and in the best shape. Impressive architecture and historical value.

We visited the Agora and this temple is here. It is very much in tact, you cannot believe how old it is. We saw it from the Accopolis when we looked down , and also at night when we saw it lit up. Beautiful!

An incredible feat of construction still standing after centuries. Well worth the time to visit it and the rest of the Agora.

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