30 Pics – a visit to Athens. Arrival at the port of Piraeus and then to the Acropolis – the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, and the Temple of Athena Nike. A few hundred metres away, the now partially reconstructed Theatre of Herode (Odeon of Herodes Atticus) amphitheatre. The Temple of Zeus in Olympia – construction began in the 6th century BC but it was not completed until the 2nd century AD some 638 years after the project had begun. Protestors in Constitution (Syntagma) Square. Dinner at a sidewalk restaurant in Athens then some views from our hotel after a pleasant evening walk “home”.
