Athens, from Acropolis

The Acropolis in Athens was one of my favourites of the iconic places I visited in Europe. And while the Parthenon was stunning, what I really loved about the place was the incredible view of Athens it provided: sprawling, historical, imperfect at times but real. I pinched myself when I made it to the top and saw this for the first time! I also tried to spot where I was staying, Plaka Hotel – but no such luck. I’m still looking for it…

Photo duo: Colosseum
