A trip to The Acropolis

Today a visit to The Acroplis, but first find an art museum.

The museum I was looking for National Museum of Contemporary Art, Whether or not the correct museum, as many with art, I do not know, but correct or not, it was closed.

En route I passed an interesting modern hotel, Coco-Mat. I actually thought it a furniture shop that makes wooden beds, which also makes wooden bicycles, but no it was a very modern hotel with wooden bicycles parked outside.

I also passed an interesting bar with a wide range of craft beer.

In the same street, more or less opposite, a derelict mansion.

A slightly different route back, stopped at a falafel bar and had falafel and salad.

Now maybe too late for The Acropolis as late afternoon, but decided to visit anyway.

But why were they charging 30 euros for a season ticket? Novevber it should be half price and I had been told last week at Ancient Agora half price for November, as it has been in the past. No they were adamant, 30 euros but half price for The Acroplis, 10 euros not 20 eros. I grudgingly paid 10 euros.

Areopagus, a rocky outcrop on the western side of The Acropolis.

Sun was setting as I left The Acropolis. As it is nearby I climbed the rock.

There are steps carved into the rock, dodgy to ascend, now barred off and an ugly stairs adjacent.

Walked to The Underdog, had a cappuccino.

Once the sun goes down it is cold.

I decided too cold to walk back caught the Metro at Thisio. Very rough characters on the train, not been on this line before, Green Line. Maybe a line to avoid.

Dinner in Plaka.
