The Acropolis (Athens, Greece)

Greece- Athens- Acropolis from Below 1

 

09.15.2013- Athens’ Acropolis is one of the most recognizable sights in all of Europe.  If this hill could talk, it would relay thousands of years of history.  The rise and fall of empires, the change from paganism to Christianity, destruction and reconstruction.  When I was in Greece in 2009, they were hard at work restoring the sights on the Acropolis.  This work began in 1975 and is still ongoing.  In a few years, when it’s complete, I hope to get to see it again, fully restored.
