Athens: After the relaxing night and a hearty Greek breakfast we stepped out for exploring Athens. Athens is the capital of Greece. It was also at the heart of Ancient Greece, a powerful civilization and empire. It is one of the world’s oldest cities. This city has an ancient charm to itself unlike any other place I have visited. We booked ourselves on Hop on Hop off so that we don’t miss out any site / monument worth seeing. A large part of the town’s historic centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites. We climbed up to the sacred rock of the Acropolis, the site of some of the most important masterpieces of worldwide architecture and art, the most renowned of which is the Parthenon temple. We covered other famous sites like Acropolis Museum, National Museum, Temple of Olympian Zeus and the “core” of the historic centre is the Plaka neighbourhood. We summed up our Athens tour by having a nice dinner on a rooftop restaurant where we could see the lit up Acropolis by night. What a sight it was!!
