It took almost 48 hours from the time we left our house to get to the Parthenon, but it was worth it. (Though I felt like slapping the travel agent that booked a 12 hour layover in Heathrow!) The view of Athens from the Parthenon was incredible!
I couldn't believe how incredible the Parthenon and the Acropolis was. The feat of building such an incredible structure on top of a mountain is almost unimaginable.
