Expert review of Athenian Agora
In its classical heyday, the Agora was the hub of city life, where market traders mingled with politicians and philosophers. Today, only fragments remain of the many civic buildings where democracy was first developed. But the 30-acre site is home to one of the best-preserved temples in Greece – the 5th century BC temple of Hephaistos. Another highlight is the Stoa of Attalos, Europe’s first shopping mall. The elegant colonnaded structure has been reconstructed and converted into a lovely little museum. But there are plenty of stores selling trinkets and tat just outside the gates on bustling Adrianou Street.
