Ancient Agora
Slave-traders and shoe-menders, jewelers and moneylenders haggled and gossiped at this ancient marketplace the history of which spans five millennia. The Agora was also the stomping ground of rival philosophers Plato and Socrates—the latter was eventually executed right here for “impiety and corrupting youth.” Today, the archaeological park is a calm refuge in the teeming city center. Don’t miss the temple of Hephaestus, one of the best-preserved monuments in Greece.
