I started out from the hotel and soon had a view of Lycabettus Hill.
I continued over to Vass Sofias and ran down that street to the Parliament.
In front of the Parliament Building guards watch over the tomb of the unknown soldier.
I cruised through Syntagma Square and the Plaka, an area of restuarants, shops and cafes.
As I passed through the Plaka I caught my first view of the Acropolis.
I continued on to the Monument of Lysikrates (with the Acropolis in the background)
I then made my way up the hill to the Acropolis, along this awesome narrow path that switchbacks through cool houses and provides great views of the city.
I stopped off at Aeopagus hill to quickly take in the view, which was incredible.
Since it was Sunday evening, the Acropolis was closed, so I headed back down the hill through Ancient Agora-Areios park enjoying the sights along the way.
This would be a cool marathon to do…
I then ran back to the Parliament, and retraced my steps back to the hotel. Along the way I passed by the War museum.
I finished up my tour just as the sun was setting. Perfect timing and great run through the city.
