Greece: Day 2

Athens, Greece

Our first full day in Greece was spent going to all of the tourist spots! But first, we grabbed coffee which I listed in my Greece Eats post here.

Olympic Stadium

The Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour pick up location was near the Olympic Stadium. We took a glance at it really quick before leaving to go on our tour.

Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour

Once we got on the tour bus, we sat on the top because we wanted to check out the views.

Acropolis of Athens

Once we got to the Acropolis, there was a huge line! We couldn’t buy our tickets online even though there was an option to, it just wasn’t allowing us. Not sure why.

Areopagus Hill

We were also able to check out Areopagus Hill which gives you a beautiful view of Athens from above.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

It was closed off (I think due to construction), but at least we were able to catch a glimpse of this spot.

Propylaea

We went up the Propylaea which was FILLED with a bunch of people, so I tried not to capture the madness.

Parthenon

Jeremiah really wanted to see the Parthenon. It was really nice to see in person, but there was a ton of construction everywhere.


Erechtheion

After walking to the Parthenon, we made our way to the Erechtheion.


Temple Of Rome & Augustus

& our last stop at the Acropolis was The Temple of Rome & Augustus.

We went back towards the ticket center & got a drink because it was so hot out.

Since the tour ticket we bought gave us access to other tourist sites, we decided to make use of it since we had so much time.

Ancient Agora of Athens

We walked to the Ancient Agora of Athens from the Acropolis.

Stoa of Attalos

We also checked out the Stoa of Attalos which had a little museum inside.

The museum had some artifacts, but we didn’t stay too long because we wanted to eat lunch.

We had lunch at Μαίανδρος Εστιατόριο which I listed here.

After lunch, we walked through some souvenir shops/vendors.

& went on the Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour Bus to our next destination.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

Our tour ticket also gave us access to the Temple of Olympian Zeus.


Olympic Stadium

Our last stop was the Olympic Stadium. We caught a glimpse of it in the morning, but we were able to see it up close this time. Our tour ticket didn’t cover this, so we just took photos of it from the outside.
