Temple of Hephaestus is really well conserved and totally a place where you would love to go! Just head to the old agora and enjoy the surrounding!

We were questioning rather or not to walk through the Agora, don't question. Just go. The Hephaestus is the best preserved temple in Greece. It is a must see. I still find it hard to wrap my brain around the ancient Greek architecture. Fascinating!!!!

There are so many attractions in the city but don't miss the Agora .The temple of Hephaestus is part of this large site The small museum is a Gem and should not be skipped

Like all the other sites, this one has its own interesting history. If you can, take a walking tour of Athens, you'll get a lot more out of these sites
