Athens – Acropolis

Day 14 – Athens – Acropolis

Athens, Acropolis

Friday, November 7, 2014

On our last day, the ship docked in Athens. We immediately got on a bus to tour the main sites which included the famous Acropolis. The first place we visited was called Mars Hill which ancient crude steps to the top. This where Paul was asked to come to explain his preaching to the officials and philosophers of the day. The hill provided many panoramic views of the city and several of the other sites being excavated. Finally we set out to climb the rest of the Acropolis to see the famous Parthanon which is the oldest original standing structure in Greece. The marble columns are being strengthened with titanium pins to replace earlier restoration work using iron. At the entry way is the Erectheum with the original marble steps. Another structure contains the Porch of the Maidens. This will be the last post as we are now back in Phoenix.
