Athens, Greece

Monday April 11, 2011 12:10 PM (5:10 AM EDT)

Yesterday we were in Athens, Greece. We arrived at the port of Piraeus
early in the morning and after breakfast we boarded a bus to travel to
Athens itself for a tour. This was our third time in Athens so most
places were familiar to us. The tour consists of a bus tour of the
downtown area and the Plaka area where a number of excavated site are
found. In addition we also climbed up to the Acropolis to see the
Parthenon. Being a Sunday it was very crowded all the way up and down.
The weather was nice although a bit breezy but a very nice way to spend
part of the day.

Today we are on our way to Naples, Italy where we will spend two days
and then on to Civitavecchia, the port city for Rome. This morning we
also booked a cruise for next June that will be two weeks up and down
visiting the fjords of Norway.
