Athens, May 2009

Three sets of photographs, from a visit to Athens during May 2009. The photographs were taken in and around the Acropolis, at the (ancient) Agora, and around the streets of the city by night and day

The Acropolis

One of the best-known tourist sites in Athens, with ancient temples and other buildings. The views over the city are amazing, but the number of tourists a bit daunting.

The Ancient Agora

Our favourite site in Athens - the old market. The Stoa (colonnade) is a reconstruction, but there are remarkably well-preserved 5000 year-old buildings.

Athens Night and Day

Photographs taken in the streets, and from our hotel balcony/
