Athens, The city of the Greek Gods
A short day visit to Athens on the way to Santorini
After waking up I decided to explore the most famous coastal spot in Athens The Port of Piraeus. However the hunger got me so strong that I didn’t end up taking pictures of it, although I have photos of the delicious Greek food.
I decided to try the trip advisor #1 restaurant in Piraeus “Grill Piraeus” http://www.portogrill.gr. It was an excellent choice. The food was delicious and the costumer service was extraordinary. The owner himself made sure we were served well and he showed me the new part of restaurant. At the end he recommended us beautiful spots in Santorini. I was Happy after a great lunch – Thank you “Porto Grill”
First view-point. On the way to explore the ancient Acropolis. Good news for students! If you have a student ID you can get in for free. Otherwise the cheapest entry ticket is 20 euro.
With the wind in my hair and Athens at my feet…

On my way to the view-point
Already in love with Athens <3
The Greek Gods must have had an amazing daily views…
Felling just like the greek Goddess…
Happiness that comes from discovery…
The golden hour on top of the Acropolis Hills…
Sun going down behind the Parthenon
Temple of Athena Nike is my favourite one. It makes me think of the woman’s strength, wisdom, power and independence.
Enjoying the last moments of the sun shine
After visiting Acropolis I decided to explore the surroundings. We took one of the routes going down to the quiet area of the city.
