Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Monastiraki, Athens Greece

We will start from Monastiraki square, a can’t-miss spot of the city of Athens, from ancient rivers and huge libraries to thousand-year-old churches and cursed mosques; Monastiraki square is arguably a place of wonder.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Stoa of Attalos, Adrianou St. 24, Athens Greece

The Stoa of Attalos was a stoa (covered walkway or portico) in the Agora of Athens. It was built by and named after King Attalos II of Pergamon, who ruled between 159 BC and 138 BC. The current building was reconstructed in 1952–1956 by American architects along with the Greek architect Ioannis Travlos and the Greek Civil Engineer Yeoryios Biris.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Temple of Hephaestus, 24 Adrianou St. Ancient Agora of Athens, Athens 105 55 Greece

On top of Agoraios Kolonos hill, which is delimiting the Ancient Agora of Athens to the west, stands the temple of Hephaestus, broadly known as “Thisio”. It is one of the best preserved ancient temples, partly because it was transformed into a Christian church

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Museum of the Ancient Agora, 24 Adrianou, Athens 105 55 Greece

One of the more significant public buildings of the Agora is the Tholos, a round structure, with six interior columns and a propylon at the east that was added in the 1st century BC.

Stop At: Varvakios Central Market, Athinas 42, Athina 105 51, Greece

The Varvakios once came close to demolition. It’s an historic open market with bioclimatic ventilation, built in 1886.
