This Greek monument dates back to 6th century BC and it played a major role in Greek civilisation being the focal point of ancient Greek life. This was not only the business centre, but also the political, educational, philosophical and social heart of Athens.

You will find this site located at the foot of the Acropolis and it is the perfect place to go for a wander, admire the wonderful views and imagine what it was like when Socrates and Plato walked around the area.

Two features not to be missed at this tourist attraction are: Stoa of Attaloas and the Church of the Holy Apostles……The Stoa of Attaloas dates back to 2nd century BC and it was built by King Attaloas of Pergamon and reconstructed in the 1950s by American archaeologists.

The 11th century Byzantine Church of the Holy Apostles is renowned for its architecture, so don’t forget to take a quick glance….
