The stoa is a modern two-store building reproducing the ancient one in the east side of the Agora and shelters the Museum of Ancient Agora. After the visit which will surely be interesting - all the objects are from the area since the prehistoric time - you can relax in the gallery sitting and adoring Nike statue, ruins of the... More

Which means ticket is already included in the Acropolis ticket valid for 4 days so why miss it? It has been reconstructed to house a small museum and make you feel like a Greek of the ancient times going to the mall.

This was my favorite part of the trip to Athens. The building is beautiful and they have restored parts of it so you can walk around freely and see all the amazing statues, pottery, coins etc. that have been recovered. After visiting the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus we were quite disappointed as although it is amazing how old... More

In ancient times this area was a type of shopping mall. Now reconstructed to look like the ancient mall turned museum. A nice hideaway from the heat and interesting historical showcases inside. One that sticks out is a display thought to be handled by Socrates himself while in hiding. They show an ancient voting system as well as day to... More

This reconstruction is part of the Greek Agora, and also functions as a present day administrative block and museum. It must have been an exceptional building in the pre- Roman times and today, of course with its striking red roof it seems a bit out of place. But what structure it would have looked some 3000+ years ago, in fact... More

Most historic sites are just really museums. Maybe some foundation walls and a little model of what they think it looked like. Okay this IS a museum. But here you don't have to look at the little model and wonder what it looked like. They rebuilt the whole darn thing. Wander through the marble columns. Buy something in the little... More

Positioned within the archaeological area of the Agora, this fully restored to its original porch is adjacent to the Roman Agora, from here you can walk among the beautiful artwork and sculptures greek -roman . Only this is worth the price of admission which of course you will also visit other historical sites of this unforgettable city.

Very well done. Great information and displays covering over a millennia downstairs (It is easy to miss the rooms downstairs and that would be a great loss), Upstairs are statues, busts and models of the surrounding area and how they have changed over times. The artifacts and explanations of how the area changed over the centuries was very interesting. Pots,... More
