Saw this as part of are visit to the ancient agora. All the statues and old antiques are cool to see. Don’t put your fingers anywhere near any of the glass containing the antiques. The people who work here watch you like a hawk.

Part of the Ancient Agora site. This is a reconstructed building of the Stoa of Attalos. It is now the museum, holding some partial statues and the museum store. Don't miss going up stairs!

This is a restored version of an ancient Athenian building. It is wonderfully restored, it provides a sense of what the other buildings around might have look like and it houses a number of original artifacts. There is also a great view of the agora...More

Located in the Athenian agora. It was a warehouse with shops, reconstructed some time ago and now there is a museum on Agora.

Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street
