Acropolis,Parthenon and the ancient Agora

View of the Parthenon from the Hotel Hera

Agora (or Market Place)

Temple of Zeus



Athens. A very busy city with 5 million inhabitants. At first the traffic and noise gets on your nerves but it doesn't take long before this crazy city starts growing on you. We got to see the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the Ancient Agora and also a suburb of Athens called Halandri (Steve's cousin lives there)

We walked and walked and walked. We also used the metro, very easy and inexpensive. The hotel we stayed at was a few meters from the Plaka and the road to the Parthenon. We also had an espectacular view of the Parthenon from the hotel roof garden.
