Roman Agora - Review

The Roman Agora to the North of the Acropolis is an interesting place to visit in Athens. The building has a spacious courtyard with ionic columns which were typical of that era. For a while, this place served as the main market of Caesar and Augustus. To validate this there is an inscription (IG II2 3174) on the architrave of the monumental Gate of Athena Archegetis ("Athena the Leader")which tells us that Julius Caesar and Augustus provided the funds for its construction in the 1st century B.C. Although partly in ruins, much of the structures can still be seen here.

Another interesting place to see in the Roman Agora area is the tower of winds. Its octagonal shape and charming architecture is worth noting. Interestingly, it was designed to serve as both a clock as well as a sundial.

Even though there are many ancient structures in Athens, this should certainly make it to any Athenian itinerary. Not only is it from a different era, the unique styles specific to the period are quite rare to see. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Athens itinerary 7 days.

Roman Agora, Athens Reviews

  • We visited the Roman Agora as our first stop after travelling in the afternoon. It was a great start with not a lot of time given that on the multi-site pass you can only do each site once. We had a little over an hour which was plenty. The site is small but the exhibit is nice and visiting at sunset is beautiful. Very informative and a nice time.

  • Buy a €30 ticket that gets you into heaps of sites around the city all in one. It's much cheaper than buying each ticket as you go and you can skip the line. Picture of what is included in the ticket attached. Won't take you too long to go around. About 30 mins.

  • I wouldn't bother going in but such a cool site, we walked around the outside and read all the plaques! Love how the street cats have claimed the agoras as their territory while the dogs have the hills of the pathenon. Really appreciate that these sites are still in good enough condition to get a feel of what it was like to be an ancient civilian of Greece and the roman empire to follow.

  • A beautiful and calm site in the old town, dominated by the Greek Tower of the Winds. The site should be renamed to underline the significance of that complicated technological marvel. The site even includes a mosque.

  • A nice little place. We got free entry as students. It has a little museum off to the side about one particular man who helped restore many of the ancient Greek buildings back in his own old time. There's no water fountain inside the place though, and like all of Athens, it can get quite hot, so bring water. It's also close to a bunch of restaurants and some ice creams places, as well as flee market (which in and of itself is ok-ish).
