  • See where aristocrats and tyrants ruled over their Athenian subjects, and the place where Western democracy was born
  • Browse stone-age artifacts in the Museum of the Ancient Agora, and learn why it was rebuilt over the years
  • See the Temple of Hephaestus, Altar of The Twelve Gods, the Temple of Apollo Patroos, the Roman Agora, and more

See the birthplace of Athenian democracy and stand at the foot of the Acropolis, where prominent Greek philosophers like Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato all gave speeches.

Skip the line and feel history come to life at some of the most revered monuments in Athens as you step among the scattered remains of the Agora, including the humble Temple of Hephaestus, the Stoa of Attalos and more.

In Ancient Greece, if you wanted to meet your mates for gossip and snacks, you might have arranged to meet at the Agora.

Don't miss the intricate marble busts and other dug-up treasures at the on-site museum, or the towering Temple of Hephaestus. This is impeccably preserved and dedicated to the god of metalworking, craftsmanship, and fire. It's so strong that it has even survived a few earthquakes!

See the way the shadows fall from the columns of the impressive Stoa of Attalos, which lines the east side of the Agora square. Originally built in the Hellenistic period it has now been rebuilt from scratch, based on its ancient appearance.

Today, with the word 'Ancient' attached to its name, we can easily forget that this whole site was once a buzzing marketplace and the most important site in the Greek capital. In fact, in 5th-century Athens (B.C) it was a political hub and a community center for social, religious, and commercial activities, which went on to shape a civilization.

A wander here is a trip back in time. Don't miss it.

No problems with ticket. Agora was fascinating but museum doesn't open until 1000.
