The Athens Acropolis
We’ve all grown up learning about Greek Gods and Goddesses and temples in school, so much so that it’s almost become something mystical to us. And for good reason. But we forget that it’s actually real; this history is real (and still very much alive).
Walking up the Acropolis is like walking up a different time. It’s awe-inspiring to imagine and realize how old and how iconic of a place it really is.
But it is because it is an icon that in order to appreciate the Acropolis you have to get over the other thousands of people who are trying to do the same thing. The Acropolis was incredibly crowded and packed when I went to visit, which was a little distracting and took away some of the magic of the place.
However, despite the crowds, it is still an experience to set foot on something that you’ve only ever dreamed about before.
