Anzac Day in Athens Tour - 24 April 2018


We made the most of our last day in the country in Greece and also in the wonderful mountains. Greece is a mountainous country but being immersed in the mountains is such a beautiful experience. On our way back to Athens we went by the road through the mountains of Arcadia which was a wonderful scenic drive. We stopped at Lagardia, one of the most picturesque villages in the Peloponnese where we had a coffee break overlooking the huge gorge. The village is located on a hillside with the bottom of the village being 500 metres above sea level and the top being 1000 metres above sea level. We have surely covered much ground and most probably have been to more areas of Greece that the people who live here. From up at the border with FROYM (Former Republic of Yugoslavia Macedonia) to Sfakia on the southern shore of Crete and from the Ionian Sea to the Aegean Sea and much in between.

Lunch was in Corinth near the canal before we headed off again to Athens. After arriving we booked into our hotel and then walked up to see the Acropolis Museum before venturing up onto the Acropolis to see the Parthenon. Over the very that we have been coming to Athens we have seen the Parthenon being rebuilt, mainly from that which was laying around the area following the blast that destroyed the Parthenon by the Venetians all those years ago. Dinner follows in the Plaka where we said goodbye to Elena and then to bed for tomorrow will be an early day.
