While visiting Athens, Greece please be sure to see the Erechtheion !
The walk is hard with dirt & rocks everywhere so watch your step, but it is so worth it to experience this part of world history.

It seems anything worthwhile visiting in Greece requires wearing out my shoes and legs. The climate is not exactly what I call a friendly one. The hot summery air can be a little harsh while you are trying to pick up your junk food one step at a time. The path is not a smooth one but a bit of rough terrain. But do you see me complain?. Anyways the place is actually famous for the six maidens that stands along its line and the original pieces are actually in museums and these one are kind of replicas. Head to Acropolis to view the original maidens or as they call Caryatids

Just across from the Parthenon, an equally impressive piece of classical architecture on the Acropolis. It is visually stunning and provides an impressive backdrop for Christmas card pictures! The architecture is also very interesting due to the way it was built into the hill.

TIP: You can have your picture taken with the original Caryatid statues. All but one are in the Acropolis Museum.

Even though the day we went up to the Acropolis was slightly spoilt by heavy rain, I still loved visiting the Erechtheion. The fact that it is still standing after all these years is some feat! It looks at though the women are balancing the roof on their heads. On a nice day, I am sure it would love even more amazing. It is directly opposite the Acropolis so you can't miss it.
