Timeless charm – Athens, Greece.

I sat by the marbled bench at one of the most significant ancient monuments in the Western world, The Acropolis, to admire the city’s timeless charm. I saw Athens that was rustic, urban and somewhat rough around the edges with old dilapidated buildings everywhere; graffiti all around the city walls. It left me wondering what their history was. I feel that there are so much depth and richness than meets the eye. I history lessonand determined to explore the city and began my “history-lesson.” I only had 2 days to explore the city. These are the historical sites I visited:

  1. The Acropolis, Temple of Athena
  2. Acropolis Museum
  3. Odeon Theatre
  4. Panathenaic Stadium
  5. The temple of Poseidon.

To sum it up, I was enlightened by the legends and captivated by the immortal limestone structures. I was Impressed by the architecture and how they stand the test of time. The sublime was Impressed by the architecture and how they stand the test of time. The sublime collections  and the breathtaking views of the Acropolis left me speechless.

I continued to explore the narrow streets of Plaka. I really enjoyed strolling through this vibrant neighbourhood located at the foot of the Acropolis where there are plenty of restaurants, gift shops and art galleries. I had a taste of Greek wine and had the best kebab at Thanasis Souvlaki (I highly recommend it). The restaurant has been around for ages, and it has been said to be very popular with the locals. All in all, my experience in Athens was surprisingly good.
