Some pictures of my trip to Athens

Temple of Olympian Zeus from the top of the Acropolis Temple of Erechtheion to the Gods Posiedon and Athena. It was believed that Posiedon and Athena fought for the city of Athens at this spot so half of the temple is for Posiedon and the other half is for Athena. Temple of Erechetheion in the background
Climb up to the Acropolis The Parthenon temple to the Virgin Godess Athena The entrance to the temple.
This was the beautiful view of the Acropolis from our hotel roof top restaurant
Temple of Posiedon at Cape Sounin. Sorry I look like as though I have blown in from the sea. The weather was atrocious that day wet and windy ugh! Theatre of Dionysus at the Acropolis Another view of the Theatre
An early Christian settlement excavated and displayed under the floor of the New Museum of Acropolis Temple of Posiedon. Beautiful view from the top of the Cape Sounin
Temple of Olympian Zeus which is the largest temple. It had 104 mighty pillars out of which only 16 survived. It is an amazing sight. The grand entrance to the temple of Olympian Zeus
In a Greek restuarant the gentlemen are singing some lovely folk music. Another view of Temple of Olympian Zeus
Tried to take the beautiful lit up view of the Acropolis but I am afraid I never got it right. This is the closest to a good picture I could take.
