Sights are clustered in an easy
8 sq km rectangle, running from Syntagma [NE] to Temple of Olympion Zeus[SE] to
the south corner of Acropolis hill [SW] to Thision metro/Keramikos cemetary [NW].
Syntagma Square is where you get to see guards in fluffy bobble shoes outside
parliament [picture above right] or catch the metro or airport bus. The Temple
of Olympion Zeus / Olympeion may not be impressive but heralds the start of the
excellent new pedestrian walkway that will take you to the Acropolis. From there
you have three good alternative routes. either a] continue on to tranquil Keramikos
cemetary and its magnificent funerary monuments, b] go round the corner to see
the little whitewashed houses of Anafiotika or c] dive down into the ancient market,
the Temple of Hephaestus or varied Roman remains
you have a litle time on your hand enjoy the views from Lykavittos Hill, a little
north-east of Syntagma - by cable car.
Always great offers and special Internet deals available.
