The Stoa of Attalos is probably the most "restored" ancient site we saw in Athens, and is worth a stop if you are in the Ancient Agora. It gives a sense of the grandeur that was once Athens, and is elegant in its simplicity. The Museum of the Ancient Agora is in the back. (And there are restrooms in the... More

if you visit Ancient Agora, then you can visit this place as well. We just enjoyed the exterior, and it's very nice to see the sunshine between the pillars ;-)))

I was in Athens recently on a 5 day trip and took the time to visit the Agora. The Stoa of Attalos is in the Agora complex and is definitely worth visiting. Highly recommended!

The Stoa of Attalis is the largest building you'll find in the Ancient Agora. The building itself is quite a marvel (and a challenge to capture in its entirety even with an ultra-wide angle lens!). There are two floors containing exhibits of what else but semi-ruined statues. Worth a look, especially since you would have paid for the entrance ticket... More

Strolled through while walking the Agora and there is plenty to see. While in the main level I took many pictures of awesome artifacts. When going upstairs taking a picture of the view of the agora a lady asked to see the pictures I took and tried to make me delete them. I showed that it wasn't inside and she... More

Purists may only want to see what's original, even if that means ruins. But there's a lot to be said for seeing at least one quality reproduction of an ancient Athenian structure in all its glory. The scale and artistry of this Agora building speak more clearly than words of Athenian wealth and accomplishment over 2,000 years ago. There aren't... More

This huge, 2-story ancient shopping center featured about 45 columns outside and offered a neat little museum inside. Very interesting!
