There was no lack of beautiful scenes all around us. I took over 750 pictures on this trip through the Mediterranean and I could have taken many more.
There was so much to see in Athens but since we were on our own we just headed to the Acropolis….and when you see it you will understand why that was enough for one day.
Yes, we climbed way up there!
But along the way, we found many ‘little’ treasures. This appeared to be a little child’s chair…can you see the little owl on the arm?
I was amazed that this beautiful scroll work.
Restoration work is constant.
And I recognized this as they concert venue that Yanni used. Another beautiful structure on the way to the top.
The white sections have been replaced for support. It was difficult to get nice pictures with all of the scaffolding.
Pretty amazing, isn’t it? Sharon and I loved every minute of our adventure in Athens!
This is back where we started (pillars), looking down from the Acropolis. Behind the green space is the old Olympic Stadium.
This post is so long but I have lots more of Athens to share….so how about tomorrow?
