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.

Gosh, the houses are so crowded.
Bonza photos i especially like the 1st photo of the mountain range in the background :-).ReplyDelete
Great captures! Coincidentally, I have also posted about Athens today. :-)ReplyDelete
Great shots of the mountains and city!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
It's like more crowded than KL. Wow! :DReplyDelete
It is so congested down there...virtually everything is white (buildings). :/ReplyDelete
Serene views...lovely shots.ReplyDelete
Wow! the city is so dense!ReplyDelete
It really is busy and built up. That last shot is lovely.ReplyDelete
Great pics! Great memories and great food too!ReplyDelete
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!
A city I would like to see... Even if I was in many parts of Greece, I've never been in the capital city.ReplyDelete
Very good shots, Life Ramblings!
Wow! That hill. I want to go there. Your photos are wonderful. So wonderful.ReplyDelete
Another place I would love to visit. Thanks for sharing! :)ReplyDelete
Isn't it huge? I wonder what Homer would say if he could see it.ReplyDelete
whoa! so congested!!! but still I want to visit this place..ReplyDelete
Woooo. Brilliant photos! I can't believe how densely populated it looks there, but I like it!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures as usual!ReplyDelete
I was surprised that Acropolis is surrounded by the crowded buildings.
Most people take pictures of the Acropolis, but you are doing the opposite. I like this different perspective.ReplyDelete
