During our 24 hours in Athens we wandered around the city, visiting some of the most popular tourist spots. Below are some highlights of our visit.
The Acropolis Museum is built over a set of ruins. Look down once you get inside! There are spots where the glass floor lets you see the ruins beneath. Unfortunately photos weren’t allowed inside, so you’ll have to visit to see the artifacts.
Pictures are allowed on the balcony (where there’s some café seating), with a great view of the Parthenon at the top of the Acropolis.
The Theater of Dionysus is on the walk up to the Acropolis. It’s pretty impressive, but there’s an even bigger theater further along the walk.
A view from above and below of the bigger theater.

That’s a wrap for our touristy Athens photos! I’ll be back soon with restaurant reviews from Athens and details from our visit to Crete.
