Travel Photo Diary: Athens, Greece

Athens is a bustling metropolis where the modern and ancient worlds collide. For great views of the whole city, make your way to the Acropolis and check out the Parthenon. Our tour guide, Apollo, was wonderful and his knowledge of the city was incredible. We trekked out on our own to explore the winding side streets and found a church tucked away in the hillside among the houses. Our second night here we all went out for a Greek dining experience at Tavern Kalokerinos- complete with traditional Greek dances and shouts of ‘opa!’ as plates were thrown to the ground.
