ATENE (Grecia) - 08-09-10giugno07
Cosa dire.. di queste tre
Divertenti. Rilassanti. E forse non si rende l'idea..
č stata una scoperta. Calda, ma
ancora sopportabile. Non caotica come si dice, non sporca come si dice..
Piena di vita, sullo stile di Barcellona e forse pił.
Mare pulito e
invitante a soli 40 minuti di tram dal centro.
Moreover we have
been really lucky to meet Anna the first evening we arrived there!
She is a life-full
girl, full of interests, open minded. She introduced us Athens the first
night and come to pick-up us at the Yabanaki beach in Vįrkiza
[Mappa] the second day with her
Anna is a speedy
driver and took us around in the nicest sorroundings of Athens.
We had time for a
drink and to see the sunset on the beach at Glyfada (very fascinating!), then we drived up to the
Lycabettus hill, passing trough a number of Athens's famous areas.
The view from the
Lycabettus is really unique!
At 11:30PM we were
back to the hotel.. late? Not too late to avoid going out again! Something
to eat at Plaka, then a "jump" into Psiri. There was
the chaos! Loads and loads of people! A neverending river of girls and
boys coming from everywhere!
We were alone
there, as Anna had to sleep in order to wake up early for her English exam
on Sunday (Sunday?!?!.. Yes).
Sunday was also a very warm day. We went to
see the Acropolis but we found a STRIKE of the museum workers. Then we
climbed the Filopappo hill, just in front, and again we had a wonderful
view of the Partenone and of all Athens laying under its Acropolis! Athens
seems a white calm sea of houses.
Then we went down visiting the small white
houses between the Acropolis and the Plaka. It is a corner of Egean sea as
the houses had been built up by fishermans who worked in Athens centuries
Finally we had our relaxing hour at a nice
bar/restaurant.. we started with beer, then pita, then calamari, then
saganaki.. greek salad! Unforgettable and fresh!
passed quickly and we had to go to the airport at 3:00PM...
But we really wish
to go back SOON!
Thank you for the
hospitality to the mythical Anna!
