... excited to go to Mt Lycabettus. It’s a mountain within the city of Athens that
gives you the most amazing view of the city. You can catch a sky tram to the

They were at war with the Venetians and one of the Venetians lobbed a cannonball up on top of the Acropolis, finding the heart of the church which was where gunpowder had been stored. It was a lucky shot and one that ended up blowing up the Parthenon - hence why it still is lacking major parts of it's structure (the archaeologists have yet to ...
