For the next few days I’m going to recap the three cities in Greece that I visited with my study abroad program. The first and last city we visited was Athens, Greece.
Our adventure to get to Greece was a long one and took up most of day 1 and 2 of our trip. Jet lag is a real thing people.
Day 3 of the trip we hit the ground running and toured the famous Acropolis along with some other areas of Athens. The center of Athens is really neat that it has a Promenade so if you get lost just find the Promenade and keep walking around and eventually you’ll end up where you started. We were staying along the Promenade which made this helpful.
On Day 4 of the trip we left the mainland and headed to the island of Santorini. It was also May Day so we ended up flying to the island because the ferry workers were threatening to strike.
We flew in and out of Athens so the last night of our trip we spent it in Athens to see any of the things that we missed. Another student and I went around and looked at some of the Byzantine Churches but most of them were closed.
Even thought we didn’t get to see the insides of any of the churches it was neat to see the outsides. If you go and read my post about Day 10 I go into detail about what I found out about the church.
