Why I love Athens, Greece

Inspired by Matthew Rush's recent post, I decided to show you all why I love living in Athens, Greece. For those of you who know me, I'm not short of complaints about this city. But today is going to be about its beauty and why I chose to live here. And an easy-breezy post this will be too. No reading. Just looking. At the spectacular city I live in ... Enjoy!










 And ... jump on a ferry, and look where you might end up!


Have a great weekend!

  6. Athenes is one of the places I've always wanted to go. To stand where Plato and Aristotle and Sophocles stood, to see where Pericles defeated the Persians, to visit the home of Democracy...sigh...

  15. Athens is one of the top places I want to visit one day, especially for the Parthenon. Athena rocks! :D Plus, I majored in Classics, so it'll be nice to visit the city where I painstakenly had to translate their ancient Greek in my classes. *laughs*

  33. yeah ok i live in athens, and all of you find athens better than america ?, please answear can you compare athens with florida or beverly hills???????

    ReplyDelete
  34. Teo: I believe every place has its own unique beauty. There's no use comparing places, because I'm sure every place has something better than another place in someone's view. And it also depends on a person's taste. Just like some people like to live near the sea, and others in the mountains.
