Acropolis of Athens
Next day was a jammed packed one with tiring uphill trek to the Acropolis Museum & temple. The place is filled with history and culture; we roamed around the Museum listening to the stories told by the guides, tales of bravery and courage of the Athena. Why and how the city came to be named Athens, the temple, its infrastructure and how many times it was invaded and raided. We kept on basking in the glory of such rich culture.
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.
Day 2 in Athens was planned to see the sights and eat the local food and this is what we did we jumped on the metro & hopped from station to station looking to for recommended shops to eat, walked on the streets of Syntagma, Evangelismos & Monastriki & stuffed our stomachs to its brim . It felt like we were in a chapter from a retro book with shopping bags and street maps of the city in our hands. We went back to our hotel to collect our luggage as we were flying to Santorini the same night.
