Athens Greece – Sights Around Town

In the old historical section of Athens known as the Plaka, many of the ancient Greek ruins stand as they did centuries ago.
The Acropolis.
In the Plaka street musicians play adding to the wonderful atmosphere of this area.
This band was playing some Led Zeppelin. Super!
The Parthenon.
Sleeping Athens street dog.

Greek olives.
I love walking around the Plaka. So much to see. So much history, great food, and shops.

Monastiraki Square
A cold Greek beer and a beautiful view… Oh yeah, and the Acropolis…
Monastiraki Square can be a little gritty and at night this area is alive with people, music, vendors, and a great atmosphere.
A street vendor in the Plaka sells nuts, candy, and coconut.
