The Acropolis is a beautiful site to visit and explore the rich history of Ancient Greece. The signage was fairly good so no need to hire a guide but it would be worthwhile to brush up on your history so you have a better idea of what you are looking at. The entrance was 20 Euros per adult and free for the kids. It was worth a one day visit on top of our touring around Athens.
Theatre of Dionysus
Odeon of Herodes Atticus
Theatre built in 161 AD and refurbished in 1951.
The Buildings on the Acropolis
The Temple of Zeus
Many of the smaller restaurants in Athens are Mom and Pop shops that cook up a series of dishes for the day and when they run out – they run out. We had the good fortune to find this place and sample several delicacies. Unfortunately the dish we loved the most – eggplant with caramelized onions we forgot to get a photo. We also didn’t get a photo of the moussaka.
The National Archaeological Museum
The Museum contains an amazing collection of artefacts from all over Greece. These are just a few of my favourite pieces:
Old as Dirt
Hannah put it best when she said that Athens was as “Old as Dirt”. The rich heritage is amazing to witness and a joy to absorb. My recommendation would be to brush up on your Greek mythology or perhaps do a crash course by reading the Percy Jackson series.
