... went to do some homework on this rock that overlooked the city. September 3rd: I woke up today and for those of you who were wondering if I ever have school, I woke up to review our reading that we had for homework. Good thing I did cause we ended up having a quiz! After class, Corinne and I went to book our ferry for Mykonos and we found the supermarket, so we could finally make use out of kitchens and not have to spend as much money eating out. Later that night, ...
... to the south-west to see the Filopappos monument (a mausoleum) on top. There were more views to be enjoyed, this time of the Acropolis itself. Our lunch was a delicious meal of local specials like grilled octopus and lamb kleftoki (a stew like preparation with feta cheese!). Live musicians lined the streets on our walk towards the Ancient Agora – our next stop. The Ancient Agora was the forum or marketplace in ancient Greece. This was the ...

I admired elderly Greek women with weathered faces, clad also in black from head to foot, walk to the markets with their trolleys to buy fresh produce and in amongst it all was the sunshine, the traffic noise and the tolling bells.

Simple but clean and comfortable. This hotel is a great location, short walk to Acropolis, metro and right in the city centre so we were spoiled for choice when it came to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Breakfast is €5 but we decided to get pastries from down the street which I'm sure was a cheaper option.
Bathroom is a good size, water pressure is excellent and nice steamy hot showers. For the price it was fantastic and we'd stay here again.
