The Athenian Agora

As you are walking around modern-day Athens, remember that you are actually walking on layer upon layer of ancient history. You won’t ever be able to forget this concept after visiting the Athenian Agora, where you can see how everyday life once was in Athens during ancient times. The Agora, meaning ‘marketplace’, includes the city’s arsenal, the Tholo, and numerous stoas where merchants could sell their goods. Excavations from 1034 onward have revealed more than thirty known major buildings inside the ancient Athenian Agora, and thousands of artifacts.
