8th/9th Oct 09 - Athens

Flew in to Athens on BA. Our luggage arrived too. Unfortunately several others on the cruise were not as fortunate.

We went for dinner in the Plaka. On 9th Oct, we visited the fantastic new Acropolis museum before boarding Seven Seas Voyager.

 The Parliament building from the hotel. Weather fantastic!
 This bar caught my eye as we walked thru the Plaka
We ate squid, prawns, swordfish here
The Acropolis from the wonderful New Museum
Agios Georgios from the terrace of the museum
A few pictures (NOT taken by me) of the fabulous and newly opened Acropolis Museum which houses the Parthenon frieze (of which the British Museum still has the Elgin bits - much to Greece's annoyance)
I thought it was one of the most well thought out and 'fit for purpose' new modern structures I have ever seen. Well worth a visit when you are next in Athens.
