Athens

The Acroplois

We stayed at The Divani Acropolis Hotel which is located downtown, about a ten minute walk to the Acropolis Museum and many great restaurants and shops.

Many of these spectacular treasures are visible from the city. Pictured above in the night sky ” The Acropolis”.

Our first full day we headed to the Parthenon , Acropolis and Temple of Athena Nike which are some of my favorites from Greek Mythology. I also loved drawing these ruins in Art class. It was exciting just driving through the city and seeing these in the distance.

I was truly in awe my first steps up to these masterpieces.

Step into History

Many of the treasured sculptures and Antiquities that have been saved are in the Acropolis Museum and other Museums through out the Country side.

This evening we were treated to our first of many Authentic Greek Meals.

After a short bus ride and fairly long walk through the streets of Psiri where there are many cafes and Restaurants before we arrived at Lithos.

About Atouristlife

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Insurance is still a very smart purchase as long as you are educated on what it covers and choose the best option for you.
