Europe

Rome

I arrived at Greece, from rome which was a 2 ours plane ride. I stayed at the 28 Micon street which was $163 a night. The 18 mykonois streets, Athens Attiki had free wifi and breakfast was include.
My first day in Greece I walked 14 minutes from my hotel to Acropolis of Athens which was located on an extremely rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient building of great architectural and historic significance, most famous being the Parthenon. Inside of the Acropolis and looking at and the view was cool, you could see all of Greece and how it looks so big but in reality is very small, and beautiful.
The second day I visited the National Archaeological Museum. I drove 11 minutes to get there. The National Archaeological Museum is a house of some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations around Greece. It has different sculptures from many different people. The National Archaeological has rooms of rooms for statues, statues from different artists and its something out of the ordinary.
Greece is a place of history, and art. This place is full of old towers and old stories. You can walk everywhere and any where in Greece. On my last day I walked in 15 minutes to an old historical neighborhood of Athens. This neighborhood is full of different museum for different type of people and which give people a choice to pick and choose what they want to seeing stead of seeing the same thing all of the time. I visited a museum of Greek Folk Art which is sa collections of manuscripts and old photos of Greece. I also visited the museum of Musical Instruments on Diogenous streets. which was filled with instruments. The most well known Historical chuches in Plaka which I called Saint Nicholas Ragavas , which at frist I thought is was a prison, but it was a very nice place to go and visit.
