Oh, Athens. One of my favorite cities in the world. Thanks for sharing your photos!

Great shots mate!

Such a unique place. Love the ancient centre pieces, topology, blanket of white apartment blocks dotted by greeen spaces stretching to the blue sea.

Fantastic pics of urbanity there, thanks mate!

Interesting to note in the Acropolis buildings the slow restoration of the ruins. Thanks to the onset of 3D printing tech they're now able to carve out precise anatomical shapes to fill in the gaps (much was destroyed when the Venetians bombed the complex). They've purposely been using a different type of marble to differentiate the old and new. This also allows them to rebuild structures without falling out with the preservation camp.

Hope you made it to Delphi while in Greece. That’s maybe the single most awesome place I’ve ever been.
