Greece 2014 – Day 3 – Athens

IMG_0152

Another casual day in Athens strolling about, fighting jet lag.  We visited the National Museum, Temple of Zeus, Ancient Stadium, the Parliament gardens, and capped the day off with live Greek music and outdoor dining next to the Roman forum (pictured above).  Since we were heading to Santorini next, and later Crete, I especially wanted to visit the Minoan pieces displayed at the National Museum that came from the ruins at Akrotiri, Thera.  One favorite piece is pictured below and dates to approximately 1600 BC.
