Under the Acropolis, Plaka, Athens, At the top of these stairs sits a little restaurant where we brought my grandmother our last night in Athens. It was a dream come true , lovely Greek music and a meal one would have to taste to believe. Everyone needs to visit Greece to appreciate the beauty and culture of this magnificent country.
The Acropolis, built in the 5th century B.C. to glorify Greece following its defeat of the Persians at the Battle of Marathon, stands awesome and aloof on its limestone mesa above hectic modern Athens. Its shimmering, white-marble Parthenon (top right) is among the most recognizable structures on Earth.
