One afternoon in Athens

We only had a few hours to spend in Athens and our hotel was at the feet of the Parthenon, the July temperature was unbearable to walk and really enjoy our sightseeing.

They are doing some restoration which takes away from the view a little bit, but needs must. I was thrilled to finally get to see this ancient wonder in real life. Tip: I... More

The site is amazing and goes beyond expectation. When we visited there were not too many people around and it was easy to access all of the areas.

it is a actual site from where all the artifacts kept in Acropolis museum are kept. So there is a certain desire to visit it. however, you can miss it, if you want
