Athens


Today for our first day in Athens we decided to go on a walking tour. Our tour guide picked us up from our hotel and we ended up walking and talking for around 5 hours.

Our guide took us to all of the ancient monuments in Athens, including the Acropolis and Parthenon, and explained the history behind everything. She was so well informed about everything and answered all of our questions.

The views from some rocks near the Acropolis were beautiful (as you can see above!). I would definitely recommend going on a tour as learning about the history behind the city was one of the best and most interesting things about exploring Athens.


I'm now off to bed as we're up at 5.30am to catch a ferry to Santorini in the morning!
