We visited the Roman Agora, when going back from the Acropolis. In comparison to the Ancient Agora, there's not much of the ruins left, yet the Tower of Wind and walking around the remains is a really pleasant experience and gets you a good picture of what was it like in the ancient times.

This sight is just in the shadow of the Acropolis. While not much of it is left, there are some nice tell tale signs of how the Romans would have had it. There is the building of the directions, the small jail cell and its also interesting to see how some of the walls were shored up. There are bits... More

While not much of the Agora is left, a walk through it to the Tower of Wind at the end can help one visualize how this place would have been in the Roman times. Like many other historical excavation site this one also an important to visit since if you miss any it will be difficult to make a mental... More

Lots of history in this place, with an interesting forum, public toilets and a wind tower (which you can now go inside) to look at

This is a very interesting site in Athens heart close to Acropolis , as it was the heartbeat of ancient Athenian market. You can now visit the really interesting Tower of the Winds or Horologion of Andronikos Kyrrhestes (aka Aerides), which means Winds. The structure features a combination of sundials, a water clock, and a wind vane. Please mention that... More

Each archeological site in Athens is worth the visit....this one is a beautiful site, the entrance fee is very small .It is also included in the combined Acropolis ticket of 30 euro which is really worth.There is a route from Acropolis hill down to Monastiraki area and you find this site on your way.....in winter it closes around 03.00 p.m.

I took a quick tour of the Roman Agora. It is a small area not far from the ancient agora. It was where the Romans moved their market. There are some ruins along with a tower. There are some descriptions in English. It might be worth a quick visit if you have time.

This is a little historical site but you can see all you need to see from the outside. It is a beautiful place but not worth the entrance fee.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
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 peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
