Panathenaic Stadium


Originally built in the 4th Century BC, this stadium holds over 70,000 spectators. It was restored in 1895 and the site of the 2004 Olympics. This was the finish line of the Athens Marathon. The WHOLE thing is made of marble!

Poros


Poros was our first stop of a 3 island cruise. We started from athen and went to Poros, Hydra and Aegina.

Hydra



Hydra is an island that does not allow motorized vehicles. Donkey's were used to get around.

Hania- Ifegenia Studios

The building on the right was our hotel in Hania. Nice quiet location.

Hania- Waterfront


Hania was our favorite town on Crete. The Venetian Quarter is a well preserved section of town...like a time warp. These buildings all have nice cafes overlooking the harbour.

Rethymno- Harbour Front


Rethymno


We stayed in Rethymno for two nights in a beautiful little hotel called Hotel Veneto. Our room had two stories over looking the old quarter.
This picture is from the massive Venetian Fortress over looking the town. It dates back to the 16th century.

Hiking in Delphi


We went hiking into the moutains behind Delphi. This was at about 1,100 meter above sea level and 500 above Delphi. That si the Temple of Athena on the valley floor.

Hiking in Delphi



We hiked into the mountains behind Candace. These crags surround Ancient Delphi.

Hiking in Delphi

This is on the E5, a system of long trail systems through out Europe. This trail has a history though. This was a road the Ancient Greeks used to get from Ancient Delphi to other areas in the mountain and sanctuaries.

The Parathenon



A nice German lady took this for us and then I took a picture of her and her husband.

Athens

We spent are last 2 nights in Athens. We finally got up to the Acropolis...crowd infested tourist spot but cool none the less.
