Athens, Greece Day 2: Day time and Gyros
We woke up early the next day and headed towards the Acropolis. For the entire duration of our trip, we took the subway to get around and it was quite easy to get around. I was told the subways were built in preparation for the Athens Olympics and in the process they found ancient artifacts. These artifacts are displayed in many of the subway stations.
For brunch, we came here to get Gyros. We couldn’t end this trip without enjoying some authentic Gyros. You’ll notice the orange tree on the right. These are bitter orange trees and are inedible, but they are planted all across Athens.
This place was a cozy hole in the wall with a couple of seats for dine in.
We didn’t go crazy with the camera since the place was so small and being the handful of tourists in Athens during this time it would be an understatement to say that we “kind of stood out”.
The weather forecast didn’t look too great when we were checking prior to our trip. Thankfully we got incredibly lucky with the weather and was able to check out the Acropolis. The steps are quite slippery there.
A beautiful view of the city from atop.
Throughout our trip we noticed a lot of stray dogs and cats.
Back to some monuments.
It was so nice to be able to observe these sites without having to squish with other tourists. The pictures show exactly how it was if you visit Athens during low season – empty (but in a good way).
