This is an unmissable opportunity to gain valuable insights into treasures of the Ancient Agora and immerse yourself in the surroundings/exhibits in an entirely innovative way.
The tour actually begins at the Panathenaic Way, the most notable and famous Athenian road of ancient times, used for leisure, travel and religious ceremonies. It owed its name to the procession held during the Great Panathenaia festival celebrated every year in order to commemorate the birth of Goddess Athena and the battle between her and God Poseidon.
Temple of Hephaestus or Hephaisteion is the best preserved of all Greek Doric temples. Even though the temple is dedicated to the cult of Hephaestus, the deeds of Theseus, the legendary king of Athens, that ornate the building gave rise to the name of the temple “Thiseion” that gave in its turn the appellation to an entire neighborhood which today is very popular and full of restaurants, cafes, and bars.
The so-called Stoa of Attalos is the most impressive Hellenistic building that never ceased its function and houses today the Museum of the Ancient Agora. During 1952-56 the American School of Classical Studies restored the Stoa that finally housed the antiquities found in the Ancient Agora. The exhibition is organized by chronological units, from the Neolithic to Roman and Byzantine periods, giving you the chance to make a journey through time and imagine the Ancient Agora from its very beginning.
