After the trip to stunning Kos island in Greece, I had few hours to spare in Athens waiting for the connecting flight. Great timing! I thought… I needed to refresh my memory with a visit to the Acropolis, which I visited back in 2008. I remember back then I spent a full day exploring the site and enjoying the Athens views from above. It really was a one of a kind experience. This time around I only had few hours to get there and see it again and make it in time to the airport for the next flight.
One of my favorite parts was exploring the little Greek streets on the way to the museum (although not much time for doing that). When I got to the Acropolis, I really saw beyond the tourist-type place… So much history in front of my eyes, and so much had happened there a long time before any of us were born. This single thought, plus seeing how majestic everything is, gave me goosebumps.
Along with seeing the site and walking through history, so-to-speak, I absolutely fell in love with the breathtaking Athens city views from up above. You could see the whole city laying in front of your eyes, and it’s so hard to capture these images in pictures… It’s truly something you’d have to experience yourself.
The visit happened back in June, and it was a pretty dark and windy day, hence my hair being all over the place 🙂 But that sort of gave me a more “goddess” feeling, in all that environment.
The stunning details of the columns were truly impressive – I had to capture that in pictures! Although I haven’t seen yet enough places in this world, I know for sure that this will remain one of my favorites and I will happily return again and again!
Have you visited the Acropolis? What is your favorite place you’ve seen so far?
