Passing Through Athens, Greece

αφήνει να πάει στην Αθήνα, Ελλάδα – Let’s Go To Athens, Greece

On our way back to Belgium from Santorini, we had a five hour layover in Athens where we stopped for a two hour bus/walking tour and a quick lunch!

We weren’t in Athens for a very long time, but I still noticed a lot of differences between Santorini and Athens! Athens is a city and is not located on the coast, so it is naturally more fast paced and is not a colorful and scenic.  The buildings were all taller and were also much darker than the white buildings in Santorini.  It was also extremely historic, being the one of the oldest cities in the world, it was expected to have a lot of that! A few of the things we saw were:

Zeus’s Palace.
