No rest for the weary: A full day in Athens awaits.
Right. No rest. Right from the plane to a bus, our luggage stowed in compartments beneath us, and then out of the bus to climb the hill to the Athens Acropolis and a wonderful view of the city. Then back down for a hasty lunch on our own across from the Acropolis Museum, then a tour of the museum (do not miss this if you’re in Athens – it’s exquisite!), and then, finally, to our lovely hotel.
Where we rest on the climb above Athens – poppies!

This has got to be one of the world’s most beautiful museums.

The Acropolis Museum. These are the real Six Sisters. Those at the Acropolis are fakes.
