The Agora in Athens is one of the sites I visited as a part of the study-travel group. Walking on the Panathenaic Way, seeing the Temple of Hephaistos, the water clock, the prison on the Marble-Workers Street and visiting the museum were some of the highlights for me.

Upon my return from Greece, I wanted to read more about the Athenian Agora and Socrates.
