    Athens - Last night

    November 3, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We made the most of our last night in Athens with dinner at Heliaia, with the amazing view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon lit up against the inky black sky. It was an amazing setting and the food was delicious. Except for a couple of odd meals, we have been very lucky to enjoy so many amazing dishes on our trip. It is great to experience other cultures and to try their food, something I am getting better at doing.

    We even got to experience a Greek Halloween parade which was very much in the Day of the Dead fashion. It wound its way throughout the Plaka district and was pretty cool to see.

    We ended the night with a gelato from Davinici Gelato. We have walked past this shop every day we have been here and had yet to try one. The shop is such a delight to the senses, with so much to look at, such delicious smells, and so many choices to make... the gelato was worth the wait and the indecision!! It was so creamy and flavoursome. A very enjoyable treat to end our last night in Athens.
