Don't miss the upstairs

Another wonderful restored building. Well worth the visit. There is an upstairs filled with cool antiquities. You can see people restoring items if you are lucky.

You can actually feel the greatness of the greeks by walking through the Agora, and watching all the pilars and statues. I wondered about there for quite a while.

A fully restored ancient mall (!). Worth visiting in the Ancient Agora (which is one of the most beautiful places to see and walk in Athens). The building provides very many ideas for photographers (try some shots between the the pillars and play with light). There is also a museum with various ruins and helpful information. Don't miss it, very... More

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
