"Follow the Footsteps of Socrates"

Socrates strolled through the Agora 2500 years ago engaging people in long, philosophical discussions. This unique archaeological park served as the ancient city's central marketplace from the 6th Century BCE. Scattered throughout the Agora are statues and ruins of numerous buildings, the most interesting of which is the well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus (also called Temple of Thission), built in the 5th Century BCE. Many archaeological finds are on display inside the reconstructed Stoa Attalou, a majestic building from the 2nd Century BCE, which is now the site of an exceedingly interesting museum.
