Athens, Greece // Spring 2018

Scroll down to content

The city of Athens will blow your mind. We ferried over after a few days on the islands, and although a total change of pace from island life, the busy city of Athens has quite the historical charm. In many ways, in reminded me of Rome, as everywhere you walk it seems there are ancient ruins of some kind. We stayed in an airbnb right at the base of the Acropolis, which could not have been more convenient! The first night we arrived, we went and sat on the Areopagus/Mars Hill, where Paul taught his infamous sermon from Acts 17. The next day we toured the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Library, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Stoa of Attalos, Temple of Hephaestus, the Roman Agora, The National Garden and much more. Again, the days were filled with gyros and yummy greek wine, olives, and as much homemade feta as we could handle. Well worth the trip!
