“Great Reconstruction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

When you see the great temple in the Agora you are seeing ancient history in amazing condition. But the Stoa of Attalos is a modern reconstruction of a real ancient building on the original site. This gives you the ability to see just how magnficent these buildings were in their prime. All part of the Agora visit.

“Reconstructed Stoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

This is a fabulous reconstruction. Which now has a collection of sculpture and some models of the Agora as it must have been at its apex.

“A reconstruction of an Ancient Greek building.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is how you can appreciate Ancient Greek buildings, the scale and proportions are magnificent, and it has an interesting museum. In the gardens are extensive ruins, but ruins are ruins they don't give you the scale of the building as this does!

“Very well kept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

An absolute must for any visit to the agora, but especially if you're a history person. Excellently maintained rebuilt stoa and a wonderful museum inside with some wonderful archeological artefacts on show.

“Best part of the Agors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Enjoyed walking through the museum which gave good explanations. The roof kept the burning sun off my head and shoulders in the August heat.
