Flag of Greece  , Attica,
Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Late start but a great day as the weather was around 80 and the acropolis was not too crowded. We climbed to the top of the acropolis to view the Parthenon and several other structures on the acropolis. After, we visited the new acropolis museum followed by shopping and eating in the Plaka district.

Athens is very busy and crowded with about 50% of Greece's 12 million people living within its boundaries. Traffic is only comparable to India in its craziness. We think two days in Athens will be sufficient and are glad to be going to the Greek countryside on Friday.
