Following our time on Corfu, we headed back to the mainland for a drive to Athens. This is another place I will need to spend more time, as we had to leave for Egypt before I really saw it in full. Maybe on a cruise of the Greek Isles next year?
Basically, the whole day was a drive from Corfu to Athens then the night consisted of last minute shopping for Egypt, dinner, then packing.
The following day we went up to the Acropolis to see the Parthenon and the excellent views over Athens. There was a lot of construction and maintenance work happening to all the buildings, so it didn’t make for very good pictures, but this should be finished up within the year our guide promised us, encouraging us to come back!
We then received a bus tour of some Athens sites including the original Olympic arena before heading to the airport bound for Egypt.
