This is the highlight of the Ancient Agora. There's a fantastic museum on the ground floor with lots of artifacts and some good explanation.

The agora shows you different aspects of (ancient) Greek life. Entry tickets set you back 10 euros in the peak season, and 5 in the off season. I think this is definitely well worth is, as there is a ton to see and it is, with its trees and benches, a sancturary in a busy city. If you please, you can also buy a combination ticket so you can visit other archeological sights too. The Stoa might be the most imposing building on the grounds. It has recently been restaurated, but still it gives you an idea of what it might have looked like all those eons ago. There are also signs to inform you on the history of the building. Inside you'll get an amazing view of the collonade, which is a great architectural sight. There are also a couple of rooms with an exhibition on archeological finds; which includes some remains of household items, games and the political system of the Ostracism. The entry ticket also gives you access to the grounds of the temple of Hephaestus. It is well preserved and remains largely intact. Unfortunately you can't enter the temple itself, but it is interesing to walk around and look at the structure. Aside from these two building, there is a church on the agora grounds and there are a ton of remains of columns, statues etc. Like I said, I also really enjoyed the quiet and the relaxed vibe. We visited in the off season and it wasn't busy at all. We took our time strolling through the park and enjoying the sunshine on one of the benches. I chose to visit this location and the Akropolis instead of some of the others like the Roman Agora, Hadrians Library or the Temple of Olympian Zeus. I feel like there is more so see and explore at tha agora, than at the other sights. I didn't regret my choice at all and would highly recommend visiting.

This building was originally built in 150 BC as a gift to the Athenians on the east side of the Agora. The stoa is a large two-storied building fronted by a double colonnade behind which were rows of 21 shops on each floor. It was the commercial center for the Agora. It was destroyed in 267 AD and reconstructed in the mid 1950’s for use as the museum.

You must purchase your access to Ancient Agora to reach this building and we appreciated to visit the Stoa of Attalos the two-story building converted in a museum where statues and artifacts are presented. It was built and named after King Attalos II of Pergamon, who ruled in the city between 159 BC and 138 BC. Other buildings on the ground of the Ancient Agora includes the ruins of the gymnasium, the beautiful church of Holy Apostles, the Temple of Hephaistus, statues, all confirm the presence of a diversity of events that occurred on these grounds. We took the combo ticket that allowed us to visit this site along others: Roman Agora, Hadrian’s Library, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Acropolis. If you already have your ticket, skip the line.
