The day began with eating breakfast and looking at this gorgeous view of Athens. The plan for today was to check out the Acropolis,see the port and as much of Athens in one day. I only have 2 and 1/2 days here, need to make the most of it !
I’m not going to go in much detail about Athens because I’ve decide to leave that for my travel blog. I will update the the post with a link when its ready. But you’ll be able to find it on http://www.chaosphotography.co.uk , alternatively click the photography tab in the navigation menu to go straight to my photography site.
I wasn’t entirely sure what to be expecting when I got to the Acropolis, I decided not to research too much into it because I wanted to be surprised. One of my favourite places in London is the British Museum, it’s a bit amusing how much of Greece is actually in there.
Today was split into 3 main parts, after visiting the Acropolis I went to Lycabettus hill. I was told you could get a 360 view of Athens from this view point. To reach it you have to pass Kolonaki.
After the mini trek up, there is a Chapel, restaurant and theatre. So you can relax from the workout you just participated in.
After that I went to the port of Piraeus, one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean. There were ferries and ocean vessels which make trips between the Greek Island. Further down I also visited the area all the Greek Millionaires and Billionaires keep their yachts. Fortunately for me the Maltese Falcon was docked there.
I ended the day back in Plaka, not too far away from my hotel. Plaka is pretty good for buying souvenirs, but beware they are a bit pricey! Tourist price >.<
