Ancient Athens, Greece
Ancient Athens Tour
After an exhausting tour of the jaw dropping Acropolis complex, we proceeded to visit the rest of archaeological sites. Our first stop was the theatre of Dynosius. It is a huge amphitheatre. It was fenced from all around so that no one could climb the steps and cause possible damage. I had told ya how the Greeks are possessive about their ruins!

Since the sun was too hot to handle, I did not waste much time in posing there. Our next stop was the Acropolis Museum. We changed our mind last minute and dropped the idea. Firstly museums don't allow photography. So it won't be any use to my travelogue. Secondly the entrance fees were rather high. So why waste so much money on something which I can't even record?

Then we proceeded towards the Temple of Zeus. It required quite a bit of walking. On the way we came across a wedding. We were lucky that we could catch few glimpses of the beautiful ceremony! The bride and groom were impeccably dressed and I managed to take a picture with them.
|The Hadrian Arch|
The way to the Temple was through the Hadrian Arch. For that we had to cross broad roads without any zebra crossing. And the tram tracks zigzagged it all over. Fortunately we made it to the other side in one piece :D After finishing (almost) all the ruins of ancient Athens, we proceeded towards a different part of the city that was newly constructed.
