Anthens Highlights
  Athens Travel Tip

Athens' most important landmark is the Parthenon. The complex has been sitting on the Acropolis (a small flat hill) since the 5th century. Although parts of the temples are missing, the remains are astounding. The grounds are made of stone. They shine like glass, smoothed by the millions of footsteps.

Museums in the city include the National Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine Museum, and the Acropolis Museum. The route to the Acropolis runs by a flea market, more accurately a flea-district. Street after crooked and narrow and hilly street are crammed with apparatus, ranging from a brass steering wheel off an ancient ship to live birds, from kites to car parts, from stained-glass windows to Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. The variety is staggering.
