Good morning people!
There are places in our cities that we visit only if we pretend to be a tourist. Things and places we take for granted and never visit, of course! Speaking for myself (although I’m sure this represents many of you), I don’t remember when was the last time I visited the Acropolis of Athens; what is for sure is that it was a reaaaaaalyyyyyy long time ago. On the other hand, there’s the new Museum of Acropolis, which I visit almost every time I come back from Florence! So yesterday with the pretext of Enrico visiting from Italy, we combined the ancient with the modern and became tourists ourselves within our own city.
The tour started from the museum with a stop at it’s unique terrace for coffee overlooking the Acropolis hill. Then, on our way up to the hill from the south side, we passed by the ancient theater of Dionysus and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and finally arrived at the Propylaea, the entrance to the Acropolis.
There are so many things to say about these places so I’m going to post more photos and details very soon!
