The Agora

Part of the Acropolis tour also took in the Agora, which was a central public space in ancient Greek city-states (maplink). The literal meaning of the word is “gathering place” or “assembly”. The Agora was the centre of the athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life in the city. The Ancient Agora of Athens is the best-known example.

The central building we visited at the Agora was a museum containing multiple artifacts from ages ago.

We finished off the tour at a lovely restaurant by the name of Chocolat where they served up a small feast of many Greek dishes. It was yum.
