The last time I was in Athens was with Lee in 2003, before the Athens Olympics.
Annie, Trev and I have only one full day in town between Spetses and our flights home. The full moon was shining and further illuminating the lit Acropolis when we arrived at our hotel in the Plaka.
Today, the sun shines as we make it over the slippery and uneven terrain and many steps of the Acropolis to view the Parthenon – thankfully, even a breeze. We aren’t so lucky at the much-vaunted, new Acropolis Museum though with the queues too long to wait with tired feet.
Refreshed after an iced coffee in the shade, we make it through the flea market in the Plaka (without throwing too much away on over-priced souvenirs – you’ll love my hand made lace aprons for wine bottles!) Then a light lunch, so delicious and innovative, at “eat at milton’s” under trees on a corner near our hotel.
The trip has really come to an end now.
