I am am really glad we took the time to visit the bustling capital of Greece . I really enjoyed walking around the city and felt very safe at night time.
We strolled through the parks in the centre and visited the Acropolis which is possibly the most important ancient site in the Western world. It was first inhabited in Neolithic times (4000–3000 BC). Crowned by the Parthenon, it stands sentinel over Athens, visible from almost everywhere within the city. Its monuments and sanctuaries of Pentelic marble gleam white in the midday sun and gradually take on a honey hue as the sun sinks, while at night they stand brilliantly illuminated above the city. Be warned there is no shelter from the midday sun and incredibly tourist ridden throughout the day.
The Isle of Ios in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea.
Ios is It is about 18 kilometres (11 miles) long, 10 kilometres (6 miles) wide and full of Australian tourists. Chora is a white and very picturesque cycladic village, full of stairs and narrow paths that make it inaccessible for cars of any kind. We stayed down on Milopotas Beach next to the diving centre Mylopotas Watersports.
We learned how to windsurf.
Rented a quad bike – Obviously it broke down on the way to visiting Homers Tomb! We drove around most of the island but there was not much to see.
The visibility for SCUBA diving was insane!! Life was scarce.
Snorkelling fun around the coast.
