On This Day . . .
We docked in the port of Piraeus, Greece on April 12, 2016, to tour Athens. Once again we took the Ho Ho bus which started out with a tour around the bays and harbors in Piraeus. We then took the 20 minute ride to the Acropolis, where we changed busses, to see the sites of Athens. Our first stop was at the Parliament Building and the Tomb of the unknown soldier that is directly in front of Parliament. We then went to the Academy of Athens and the National Library. We then ventured into the heart of Athens seeing the flea markets on Ermou Street which starts at Monastiraki Square. We wound up at Central Market before heading back to Piraeus and our ship.
