Explore In The Middle, To The and more!

One thing that fascinated me in Athens, was that you could find ancient ruins and columns pretty much everywhere. Close to the Monastiraki metro station, they've even built the metro tracks in the middle of a historic park 😃

What I loved about Athens: No matter where you go - In the middle of districts with not necessarily the nicest buildings, you can find such ancient masterpieces shining through. 🌟

Despite everything, I really love the Olympics. So of course I also had to visit the Panathenaic Stadium while being in Athens. It was built almost 2000 years ago and still serves as the finishing point of THE classic Marathon from - well Marathon - to Athens! 🏆
