... where those restaurants with the views were!! It was a lovely night but by 9.30 we were over walking around and finally found a rooftop restaurant that had a spare table.

We took a cab back to the hotel...pretty bummed out. As much as I love Greece, I am coming to realize that the Athens metro is the Wild West.
