This is a 20th century reconstruction but all these columns still pretty to look at. There were also lot of sculptures and statues, part of the Museum of Ancient Agora. All in all worth a visit, and great view of the Ancient Agora from the...More
Statues, artefacts and artworks dating back to the founding days of Athens. Staggering to see how advanced the artisans were considering the technology they had. A large 2 story building housing a lot of household items that give you an insight into how the early...More
We saw some amazing sites in Athens, this is part of the Agora but didn't nt really hit the mark for me although giving it an average rating doesn't seem right. Nothing in Athens is average. It does offer shade after you have been in...More
I could not help but think of Piazza Repubblica in Florence, Italy. In Florence the covered area with all the ancient statues were free to see. Though the statues in Florence were dated only to the Renaissance. These statues at the Stoa of Attalos were...More
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.

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the 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
peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
