Politics, Trade and Philosophy in the Heart of Classical Athens

The ancient agoras were essentially places of gathering and exchanging, either of material goods, or just of ideas.

As a keen “world merchant”, who advocated that only an examined life was really worth living, Socrates spent the best part of each day of his life in the Agora of Athens, where the heart of the city’s civic, political and commercial heartbeat.

At this walking tour, we will try to relive and revisit various episodes of the philosopher’s life, following Socrates’ footsteps around the surviving ruins of the Athenian Agora, and addressing various issues of spatial management, philosophy, political and social ideology at the heyday of Classical democracy, in the process.

Literally, under the blue Athenian sky!

The Ancient Agora of Classical Athens is the best-known example of an ancient Greek agora, located to the northwest of the Acropolis and bounded on the south by the hill of the Areopagus and on the west by the hill known as the Agoraios Kolonos, also called Market Hill.[1] The Agora's initial use was for a commercial, assembly, or residential gathering place.
