Today Duke and I did the Rick Steves Athens City walking tour. It was excellent. He explained the history of Athens from 500 BC. He started with when Athens was a city state, through control by the Persians, Romans, Macedonians, Byzantines, Ottomans, and Nazis. It’s a long and confusing history but he makes it clear.

For dinner we went looking for gyros. We ended up having a wonderful grilled meat platter for two.

After dinner we went up to the roof of our hotel to check out the acropolis.
