Great part of history

We visited after walking down from the Acropolis. It was a nice break from the heat as well as having lots of displays of pottery, jewelry, gold, etc.

The museum is a nice respite from the sun if you've been wandering Agora under the hot sun. There are many interesting items downstairs. The upstairs is really worth a visit as the view of the entire Agora and other areas can be seen from there.

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.

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 ;-)))
