Finally, the Acropolis

Our host in Athens had recommended we leave the Acropolis until the end, so it was almost our last day in Athens when we started the walk up the hill.  After days of seeing it from afar, I was worried it would be a disappointment, but up close, it was pretty impressive.


But boy, it was crowded.


Along with the Parthenon (and for everyone like me who doesn’t remember their Greek history, the Acropolis is the name of the rock, and the Parthenon is the name of Athena’s temple), we saw a number of other ruins on the Acropolis, as well as sacred caves.


And, most of all, we did a lot of walking.  We definitely surpassed our 10,000 steps.
