Ancient Agora: The Core of Ancient Athenian Life
The Agora of Athens, was actually the heart of the ancient city.
It was here, where the Athenians would shop and gather to discuss politics, religion and culture. It was here, where great philosophers, politicians, orators a.o. theorized, spoke out and debated. It was here, where ancient Greek democracy came to life!
The narrations of your experienced guide will revive aspects of everyday life in Ancient Athens and you will acquire information on all the important public buildings and temples located in the area.
The museum, housed in the two-storied Stoa of Attalos which was built in the 2nd century BC, holds among others, a very enlightening exhibition of objects associated with the various departments of civic life and the institutions of Athenian Democracy.
The tour ends at the Ancient Agora.
