We started at 9 AM and drove 40 minutes from our apartment into Athens and OH MY GOSH, the drivers are crazy, and the motorbikes are even crazier. Thank you Baby Jesus that we actually found the parking lot and that we arrived safe and sound. We were slightly harassed by some taxi drivers that wanted to show us around for 45 euros. Once that was done, we started walking, until we happened upon the hop-on-and-off sightseeing bus, which we quickly agreed to. It was worth every bit of the 28 euros to do the bus and it gave us a bit of history of the 15 locations we went by. We hopped off at Monasteraki square, ate lunch (I was starving) and then went walking around and street art (aka graffiti) hunting in the Psiri area. A few hours later, we were super hot, thirsty, sunburnt, exhausted and back on the bus, headed to the area where our car was parked. All in all, it was a good day of getting an overview of the Athens sights; we saw the Monasteraki square, the Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Arch, The Parliament, a view from the hill of the Acropolis and the Parthenon and walking around Psiri. By 3 PM, we were all tired and decided to call it a day, with the plan to venture back tomorrow, for an early morning visit into the Acropolis. PLEASE let the traffic be better at 7:30 AM. Pretty please?!
