The Tower of the Winds
Sitting away from the Acropolis are the ruins of the ancient Roman Agora (marketplace). Back then, the Romans built this tower to stand as a timepiece for the conquered Athens. It features a combination of sundials, a water clock and a wind vane as instruments to tell time way back then.

I just loved how this shot turned out and still show it as a favorite of this trip.

The ruins of the "Wheat Bazaar"
In the Roman Agora by the Tower of the Winds stands this ancient marketplace that isn't much more than a lovely piece of history worth grabbing a photo of as you pass by.
