In our second day in Athens, we decided to finish up all the things we didn’t get to do yesterday. Today was even hotter- around 95!
We started out at the Ancient Agora which was the cultural and social hub of ancient Athens. It was so interesting to walk through the ruins and picture everyone who was anyone hanging around the local lecture hall, concert hall, and shopping mall. Aristotle and the disciple Paul are known to have been here.
Next we wandered up to the funicular that goes to the top of lykavittos hill- the highest point in Athens. The funicular was a bit too expensive, but we walked up about half way and saw a pretty good view.
Next we are going to get some cheep gyros from a restaurant near our Air BnB and head to the airport for our flight to Santorini.
