I LOVED Ancient Agora. It was the last archeological site we saw in Greece, but my favorite. (Others we visited include Acropolis, Mycenae, Epidavros - big one we did NOT see was Delphi) We visited in summer, and it was lush and green with lots...More

Yes. The Agora costs 8€ if you don't buy the combination ticket for the Acropolois which is 30€. Open 8 to 7 every day.
