Our World - Athens: A bustling metropolis

These are some aerial views of Athens, as captured from Acropolis,

with low rise buildings densely packed within the downtown area.

It's definitely a bustling city and one that never seems to sleep completely. I can't imagine how noisy it must be with thousands of people living within the area and vehicles traveling at every hour of day and night.

but wow, what an amazing city and one of the best things about the Acropolis is not just about the ancient ruins. It also has one of the great views of the city and as can be seen here, Lycabettus Hill is the highest point in Athens.

  7. Wow, that is really thick, the best example of the word "thickly populated". It is good they have cold climate or else it might resulted in negative vibes! I wonder what the gods might have said seeing their old place now!

  10. Great pics! Great memories and great food too!
    Overall, I loved Athens! But the Acropolis was a bit disappointing to me. Have in my collection of non-digital pics a similar as you last one!

    Very good shots, Life Ramblings!

    I was surprised that Acropolis is surrounded by the crowded buildings.

  18. Most people take pictures of the Acropolis, but you are doing the opposite. I like this different perspective.
