Two full days in Athens in late March 2008. One day was cloudy and rainy, and the other evolved into brilliant sunshine.

Over the course of two days, we visited the Acropolis (of course), which currently has major construction on the Parthenon and other structures; the National Archaeological Museum; the Temple of Olympian Zeus; the Roman Agora (where we huddled under a tree in the rain); the Ancient Agora (where we huddled in the Stoa of Attalos to get out of the rain); and Kerameikos, the ancient cemetery.

We also enjoyed cafes, people watching and window shopping in the Plaka.
