Our final stop in Greece was a day and a half in Athens.  It is a huge city but not as crowded or hustle-bustle as I had feared.  We saw most of the main archeological sites (Acropolis, Agora, Temple of Zeus) in the downtown area as well as did a bit of strolling through the “Plaka” – the neighborhood just below the Acropolis.

Unfortunately, most of the main buildings up on the Acropolis are under restoration and, therefore, obstructed by a bunch of scaffolding.  That really takes away from the awe and “ancient-ness” as well as eliminates any really good photo opportunities.  But, I’m glad we got to see them at least.

What pictures we did get can be seen here.
