Sat-Sun March 20-21 Athens
We were both surprised at what a great city Athens is . On Saturday, after avoiding the anti-war rally, we went to the Acropolis. This is the place where the ancient Greeks worshipped their gods. There were several important and impressive pieces of architecture, most notably the Parthenon.
After a day touring the Acropolis, we headed towards the Parliament building to watch the changing of the guard
On Sunday we did quite a bit. We started out with a tour of the agora, the political centerpiece of ancient Athens. We headed to the market and then sat and mapped out our route for the rest of the trip. We had a fun night out and headed off early on Monday to Monodendri. We will finish up later this week.
