Ancient Agora: The Core of Ancient Athenian Life

Out of all of Athens' ancient ruins, the Agora firmly defines the city’s status as the cradle of Western civilization. This was where ancient Greek democracy came to life. It was a commercial, political, religious, and cultural hub where the greatest Greeks, such as Plato, Socrates, Demosthenes etc., theorized, spoke out and debated. Explore the temples, an ancient concert hall and imagine ancient life under its famous long, marble colonnaded arcades.

You’ll also see the significant artifacts at the Agora Museum, located in the two-storied Stoa of Attalos which was built in the 2nd century BC.   

The tour ends at the Ancient Agora at approximately 15:00 (3:00 pm).
