A day in Athens

We shared a  pre-booked taxi into the centre of Athens,  I momentarily forgot which was the passenger side of the car and went to get in the driver’s side, in retrospect this would have saved us from knuckle clenching trip into Athens centre as the driver continually switched lanes without signal or looking, narrowly missing a number of collisions.

We started at the Acropolis taking the short route from the western side.   The Acropolis was impressive but the amount of scaffolding and building materials rather spoiled the experience.

Athens was an interesting city but the amount of Graffiti  and number of visitors does not make this top on our list of cities to return to.

After we left the Acropolis we jumped on the Sunshine express to get a quick view of the other sites, this wasn’t the original train we had planned but was a Euro cheaper and we believe it took a shorter route than the other train.
