Ease your way into the timeless marvels of the city and start your tour with the Ancient Agora. This former marketplace was the ancient city’s heart and soul. It was here that the likes of Socrates and Plato gathered to debate ideas and civic actions. This market served many roles, among them as a public speaking hotspot for administration, commerce, and political decisions as well as all sorts of cultural activities. You will walk past former temples, colonnaded arcades, and concert halls. Release your imagination to picture how rich and diverse life was in this main center of a bygone era.
Start your visit from the north gate off Adrianoú Street and head up to Agora Hill. Here you will find the awe-inspiring Temple of Hephaistos, one of the best-preserved Greek temples.
