I enjoyed some rest and relaxation in Greece with Amy, one of my besties. Our adventures began in Athens, also known as the City of Athena. Shortly after arrival we were checked into our hotel and ready to explore all that this ancient city had to offer prior to early early morning flight to Santorini.
The Acropolis and other ancient ruins are prime tourist attractions and well worth the wait. In addition to obtaining gorgeous pictures, the energy that exists in this geographic footprint was exhilarating to experience.
Athens is the city that never sleeps! We stayed near Syntagma Square and certainly didn’t observe the financial crisis as it was filled with bustling shoppers. Many of the shops remained open until after 11pm as restaurant-lined streets lined were packed. We also passed by a filming crew in the middle of recording a scene…before completing our inaugural day in Greece with a scoop of delectable gelato.
