Destination: Athens

Here are few favorite photographs taken while in Athens.

Nike Bastion/ Temple of Athena Nike is the smallest temple on the Acropolis, its placement is on the southwest corner on the edge of the cliffs, and I snapped this photo while walking back down the Acropolis towards the Museum. {High Classical Period}
View while hiking to the top of the Acropolis. It was extremely cold and windy that day, and the scene was breathtakingly beautiful.
Gorgeous sunset from the rooftop of our hotel. The sun would set quickly each evening so, we had to time our visit carefully to take in the wondrous sky each evening!
Dromeas {“Runner” in English} is a glass and iron sculpture created by Athens artist Costas Varotsos. The Hilton located on Vasilissis Sofias Avenue showcases the Runner across the street, and I found the best photographs of the sculpture are at sunset.
Walking the Plaka at night is exciting. Known as the “neighborhood of the gods”, this historic area is clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis. This photo of the Parthenon was taken after dinner.

Travel stylishly,
K
