Ancient Greece, today…

The Acropolis of Athens is located on an extremely rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon.

In order to get this image we had to take a cable car to a restaurant, although during our walk from our Hotel, we came across another neighborhood restaurant and ate there.

I liked this look because it also gives an idea of the location relative to the other parts of the city. There is evidence of that this place was inhabited as far back as 495-429 years BC – the fourth millennium. We were on a two week trip with OAT, Overseas Adventure Travel. Recommended.
