... straight to the Acropolis for a two hour tour.
We had all decided against seeing the National Museum which is supposed to be very good and just spent 2 hours hearing about the Acropolis and temples and parts of Athens. We all found it very interesting. It would have been nicer not to have all the scaffolding around the Parthenon.
