The Roman Agora (Greek: Ρωμαϊκή Αγορά) at Athens is located to the north of the Acropolis and to the east of the Ancient Agora.
The original Agora was encroached upon and obstructed by a series of Roman buildings, beginning with the imperial family's gift to the Athenians of a large odeion (concert hall). The Odeon of Agrippa was built by him in around 15 BC, and measured 51.4 by 43.2 metres, rose several stories in height, and – being sited just north of the Middle Stoa – obstructed the old agora. In return for the odeion, the Athenians built a statue to Agrippa at the site of the previous agora; they based it on a plinth recycled from an earlier statue by covering the old inscription with a new one.

Walk down from the Acropolis and you bump into the Roman Agora! Ancient, well preserved place clearly you can see a small settlement existed at this place! Please visit the museum!! Interesting exhibits!

In general the whole are is very idyllic to walk around especially in the night, and if someone strays off to Plaka there are lots of tavernas and cafes, bars. Especially in Anafiwtika (a small area just under the Acropolis where in late 19th century the stone masons that helped build neo classical buildings in Athens lived) there is a maze of amazing small alleys where it feels like time traveling and at the top just a breath from the rock of acropolis there is amazing view of Athens.

Brilliant place to go and see not sure about trying to rebuild it using tower cranes and concrete though

Super cool place to visit! Communal bathroom to see and a water clock tower. Very peaceful, too. I recommend buying the archeological site pack and purchase at any site, but not the Acropolis (long lines). There is also a student discount with ID!

One of the many ancient historical monuments of Athens located in one of the best neighbourhoods. You can visit this area and then stop to rest in one of the many cafes or restaurants of Plaka. It is certainly worth a visit. Altough this Roman Agora was not built by ancient Greeks but by Romans, it is perfectly blended with the rest historical places of Athens.
