I had a most wonderful visit to Athens at Christmas and New Years time this year. If you like to know what Athens is like at Christmas time, you can look up this album:
The photos are mainly from Syntagma and Zappion, but I have included some night images and some from the area where I stayed. Strange - especially when you come from a country that has been extremely cold this winter - to see streets surrounded by trees with ripe oranges on their branches, as well as still be able to eat outdoor in late December.
The locals told me it was the warmest December and New Year period they have had for the last 100 years.Edited: 10 January 2010, 21:25
