    Athens - Not just ruins

    October 14, 2017 in Greece

    As we left the fun and beauty of Santorini we were a bit uncertain about Athens. A bit poor and seedy? Lots of beggars and ATM's without cash?

    Well, actually no. From start to finish we enjoyed every aspect of Athens, from the archaeological sites to the shopping to the restaurants to the gardens.

    We stayed at the La Strada Hotel, special enough to get a couple of photos below, one for its great rooftop bar with an Acropolis view, and one for the room, apparently designed by a guy who owns a glass factory!

    We visited all the ancient sites, plus the Acropolis Museum and the National Archaeological Museum. These latter two were great to help make sense of the ruins, some of them not more than piles of rock to our untrained eyes.

    How the restorers can reinstate a piece of pottery broken into twenty pieces, then strewn all over the ground, then buried for a couple of thousand years is incredible.

    Monastiraki and its stalls and bars and restaurants was great fun too. We quite enjoyed having a drink and a wander around in the evening, when the hordes of cruise passengers had all retreated back to the buffet.

    Well, by the time anyone reads this we will be back in Arncliffe, recovering and unpacking and ready to go again. What a great holiday!

    Agios Eleftheris Church

    July 5, 2016 in Greece

    My favorite church in Athens! Located adjacent to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, this tiny church is a breath of fresh air in the crowded Athens streets. It was built in the start of the 1200s by the bishop of Athens. The church is largely made of marble and is adorned with Roman and Byzantine reliefs.

    Plaka District

    July 18, 2016 in Greece

    We made it to the historical Plaka district by late afternoon to wander through the labyrinth of souvenir stores. It was on this street we ran into the rest of the gang. We enjoyed the street arts and music and made our way to Yvonne and Jerry's apartment before dinner.
