Athens, Greece

We arrived in Athens around 22:00, and our Airbnb host recommended a “non-touristy” restaurant nearby called, “Gyro Zone.” Yes, I had to order a gyro on my first night in Greece. And let me tell you guys, it was delicious. I could really taste the difference between the gyros in Athens and back home in Seattle. The tzatziki was freaking amazing. Also, there were fries in my gyro!

The next day, we went to the Acropolis. But before we went up, we stopped by a restaurant to have some pork and chicken souvlaki. Again, everything was absolutely delicious, but I’m sure we can find a street vendor with cheap and probably better souvlaki.

 

Here’s a quick description from wikipedia:

“The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on an extremely rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon.”

Words cannot describe the beauty of the Acropolis. Despite the sun beaming down at us while we climbed to the top, the views were worth the sweat. Enjoy these pics!
