2-Day Trip to Athens / Greece - April 2005
[German Version - please klick]
The first business trip after my skiing accident: Athens.
Really exciting and interesting to visit those ancient monuments. There are
thousands of pages in the Internet about Athens but almost all of them suffer
under very small pictures and a lot of text.
I am doing that in a different way, have a look:
Vew from the Hilton towards the Akropolis and ........
the harbour Piräus.
The foot of the hill of Acropolis. We only had 1,5 hrs before takeoff of
our flight back home. It has still been worth to rush over the place and
get some great impressions.
Auf dem Weg nach oben: Das Odeon des Herodes Atticus, ein antikes Theater,
in dem heute noch Konzert- und Opernaufführungen stattfinden.
On top of the hill: A marvelous view of the city through the Propylaea.
You can see what time and smog have done to these monuments built appr. 400 b.c.
Interesting view on the on going restaurations..
The restaurations in the back of the Parthenon.
We had this beautiful view drinking Caipirinha on the top level terrace
of the Hilton until 1:30 in the morning. Not that bad, right??
Athens is really worth a trip.
