Athens - Greece

This day was the closest we came to bad weather.  It was very windy at the Acropolis of Athens but the overcast conditions made the heat much more bearable especially in the crowds.

I had originally planned to catch the train on the green line from Piraeus to Omonoia then change to the red line back to the Acropolis. A wonderful Greek man gave us advice as he heard Yumi and I discuss/debate/negotiate the best station to get off.

He told us to get off 2 stops earlier than Omonoia at Thissio on the green line and walk from there to the Acropolis.  You can see the Acropoils when you get out of the station. It was a wonderful short walk along a very wide stone pathway filled with vendors and restaurants.
