Greece

Greece By Land

Greece

I was told that October is the prefect time to be in Greece: the temperatures are mild and the tourist season is waning. In this travelogue, I chronicle my experiences, impressions, and photos from my wonderful, two-week tour of Greece.

Epidavros and Cape Sounion

Epidavros

Heading in the direction of Athens to catch my flight, I stopped off to see the ancient theater at Epidavros, then I visited Cape Sounion, where the Temple of Poseidon stands.

Nafplio, Venetian City By the Sea

Nafplio

Nafplio is a quaint seaside town on the Peloponnesus. It was built by the Venetians when their empire stretched to these parts, so the buildings have a Venetian style. It is said Nafplio is the most romantic city in Greece.

Delphi, Center of the Universe

Delphi

Delphi is a mountain town beside the most important ancient ruin in Greece. I was going to see the ruin by was charmed by the town.

Monasteries of Meteora

Meteora

I drove up to Meteora, a cluster of monasteries perched high atop narrow rock outcrops. The geology and the monasteries on them are equally impressive.

City of Athena

Greece

I spent the better part of a week in Athens attending a conference, but also taking in the sights. There are many things to see, but the Acropolis and the Plaka below is what draws me.
