A few weeks ago as our team traveled from Greece to Germany, we had an 8 hour layover in Athens, so our adventurous group decided to take full advantage of that! Once we landed in Athens, the 12 of us rushed our backpacks to airport storage, took the train from the terminal to the old city center, and hurried to the Acropolis. Once there, we heard that the Acropolis was under a lot of construction and we didn’t have a lot of time to see it fully anyway, so we ended up just touring the old ruins below the Acropolis – which were amazing! We had about two hours to wander around the ancient temples and streets and it was overwhelming how much history there was to take in. Pictures don’t quite do it justice, but below is a little photo diary of our day because I want to remember these moments forever!
