I present the Parthenon! The most famous building in Greece. It's a shame that it had to be viewed with all of the scaffolding around but it's necessary for all the restoring they are doing. It took 9 years to build the Parthenon and they have been restoring it for 30 years and not even half way done. Most of those pillars were destroyed and they have been piecing them together one by one. Like the world's most annoying and torturous jigsaw puzzle in 3D.

Ancient Thira - Ancient Thira is an antique city on Messavouno Mountain. It is close to Kamari beach. Even if you are not interested in the Archaeological remains at Ancient Thira, you must visit this place for the panoramic view and the long drive to the top of the mountain.
If you like peace and want a quiet place to relax and retrospect the Meteora is the place for you. People are hospitable and friendly... No one is in a rush and everyone is happy and smiling! Just like us on this short trip to Meteora... Would love to go back again and someday I will.. Till then I cherish the memories :)
