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.
