I visited with Marina at the front desk after breakfast. She gave me some great information about navigating through Athens. We are going to spend a week on the island Skopelos. She has a friend that owns a dress shop there, and she visits her once a year. She gave me great information about restaurants, beaches, and ferry information. So helpful!
Dave and I walked through the city towards the Acropolis . There are ruins everywhere you turn. We had lunch at a sidewalk cafe tucked in between buildings. We love Greek food and are in heaven. We had Lamb Slovlaki and a Greek salad.

Casts have been made of the pieces in London and put together with the original pieces on display. The Acropolis museum has tried to have the pieces in London returned, but that would change how every exhibit in a museum is treated.
We returned to our hotel to have a rooftop dinner with beautiful views of the city. We reviewed the train schedule for tomorrow and decided we needed to leave earlier than we thought. So we cancelled our city tour. We are not city people and were happy with the things we saw today. There are endless amazing things to see here, but we were satisfied.
