Athens is the capital of Greece, a city where you can find anything you want. Delicious greek but also international food, the unique greek nightlife and the beautiful archaeological places. What makes this city so special? Ancient Greece had a huge impact on the world today. Everything began in the area of the Parthenon and spread to the rest of the world.

Of course I could not post highlights of Athens and not post a photo of the majestic Parthenon. I prefer this shot over one I took of the front simply because you don't see so much of the scaffolding from restoration work.
It's a shame that this building was in beautiful condition until 1687, when a bombardment set off an ammo dump the Turks left in there, blowing up a part of the building. I do wonder if they'll fully restore things in my lifetime.
