We walked around Athens today looking at assorted ruins and temples - they’re kind of everywhere. Nothing as big or impressive as yesterday, but still pretty cool.
We ended at the Olympic stadium. As in THE OG Olympic stadium. It was constructed in 350bc and is the only one in the world made of complete marble. 1st Olympics held here. Really impressive to sit in the stands and picture everything that’s happened there over the last 2300 years.
They had a small museum that housed all the torches from the Olympics. Fun looking at them all and picking our favorites.
We went back to our room to rest and cool off - so we’d be ready to come back out in the evening and see the city lit up. Went to the highest point in Athens and then down close to the Parthenon. Very impressive at night.Read more
