The Strategeion, a trapezoidal chamber located in the Ancient Agora of Athens, Greece, is known as the meeting room of the ten Strategoi of ancient Athens.
Having been built atop two ancient graves dating back nearly 2700 years, archaeological indications reveal the presence of a heroic cult dedicated to the hero named "Strategos", a name that was later used as a title for the Athenian generals.

Just awesome. One of the most amazing places in greece. Its a very organized place and if you go there you will pick beautiful pictures. If you ask me, go soon but stay there until the sunset and enjoy that amazing view. Bring water with you, or at least a bottle, it is really hot in there, but you can find some fountains with safe drinking water on site. Enjoy

Such a lovely place, so much to see, lots of opportunities for really good photos. Some of the structures are rebuild, but this doesn't take the charme and the aura off of the things you see. The museum has really interesting stuff to show. If you visit Athens, you have to go there. Big thumbs up

I like this place, you can walk through and spend such as much time you want. Truth is that u have to use your imagination cause there is not many stuff which are complete but it doesn't mean its not worth it. Lots of green around and the ancient atmosphere is a thing. For me is this place "must see"

Lovely huge site with a lot of archaeological objects, buildings and digs. Make sure to have at least two-three hours to spend here. It is right at the Acropolis hill, so the views are beautiful too. Toilets are on the site as well. The entry was 3EUR outside the season. In the hight season it is double to price, so consider buying the combined ticket if you are planning to see more.

Everything in the center of Athens is Amazing the Ancient Agora is no different all the ruins are just great and if you walk a bit outside you have a lot of nice restaurants, bars and the market. I love to walk around this area. A must if you are in Athens !!! Some pics at instagram: mybeerandme

Beautiful mixed feeling place. Great for families and budget friendly. Great views if the town and acropolis. A full day need to explore each landmark. The maps given at the entrance appears not to be so elaborate in directions and if you are not so good with directions as I am, you end up doing 3 or things and out. Serene though.

One important thing to note - it closes at the surprisingly early time of 3pm, and in reality a team of whistle blowing attendants will here you out if the area from about 2:45! Plan accordingly to make sure you have enough time! Incredible to explore and imagine what it must have been like when it was the centre of the civilized world. The museum in the reconstructed area has some excellent exhibits such as a voting machine and ostracism tablets. Well worth checking out.

Exciting to see a whole town laid out between the two well preserved ancient buildings. Just the basements mostly, still gives a good idea of how it used to be more than two thousand years ago. And very picturesque too.

A must place to see if you are interested in experiencing life in the centre of the city in ancient Greece. It is the best known example of an ancient market (agora). It was the heart of Athens where trade was happening but also the cultural and religious centre. The main court of justice was there too. You can enter the ancient market to see the everyday trade products or visit the very well preserved temple of Ifaistos. It shares the same ticket with a visit to acropolis and you can revisit during a two days period.

Beautiful mixed feeling place. Great for families and budget friendly. Great views of the town and acropolis. A full day need to explore each landmark. The maps given at the entrance appears not to be so elaborate in directions and if you are not so good with directions as I am, you end up seeing only 3 or so attractions prior to leaving. Serene though.

Mind blowing how much history had taken place here. The scale of the complex was also astonishing. The nearly complete temple was a real treat to see. Most of the Agora is accessible for those of limited mobility though the ground occasionally is rough. The reconstructed building in exact replication is cool. In it are many pottery and statues artifacts found on the site.

Beautiful place to visit with a lot too see. One of the buildings has been converted to a museum where you can see restored statues and found relics of different periods. Entrance is free for students and others can buy a combination ticket for the entire area for one price ( at time of review this is 30€ )

An amazing historical experience. Strongly suggest hiring a guide with expertise to explain everything. And go early. It gets very busy especially during school days (school trips) or on holidays and weekends. Wear good shoes. I don't think sandals are advisable. Stones are slippery and uneven terrain.

Very interesting museum. Two huge floors of exhibits some original, some faithful recreations of ancient relics. The Agora itself is a beautiful recreation. Restrooms and water fountains are on the premises. Not much of a gift shop if that's your thing.

This place is a history wonderland. You can feel the history all around you. There is not much remaining of the structures that once stood, only a few ruins here and there, save for a few structures that still stand. But the site is interpreted wonderfully! There is also a museum in a building that was built to replicate a building that once stood in the Agora. I recommend having an audio guide of some sort, or just using a guidebook, to get a more descriptive and informative experience. A must-see in Athens!

Loved doing this sight! It’s such a beautiful place, and the flow of other tourists was manageable. We bought our 5 day pass here with no line and then went to the Acropolis with it the next morning and walked straight in. Try it!
Christine McDade | Jul 17, 2018
Worth a visit! Not as well known as the Acropolis and consequently less crowded. The heart of ancient Athens business and arts. Museum in reconstructed market building. Ruins and temple and church. Rick Steves has an audio description that guides you through the entire area with background information.
