Athens is a great city to explore, and the Acropolis is perched at a dramatic high point where it can be enjoyed across the entire city – especially at the dramatic hour of sunset.
Our observation point boasted an impressive view of the Acropolis, and we loved to see the ancient monument bathed in a stunning golden light before the sun slipped down beyond the horizon. The Mediterranean Sea was visible just beyond.
Later that night, we would walk around the monument, and enjoy its dramatic floodlighting, but I highly recommend our dramatic perch to enjoy a sunset early on during your next stay in Athens.
Enjoy your stay in this interesting city the next time you’re passing through Greece.
