Guided Tour of the Acropolis

On October 15th the Realistic Ramblers took a wonderful guided tour to the Acropolis. As an extra treat, we began our tour at the new Acropolis Museum. Although not officially open yet, we did see a single exhibit and also learned about the museum itself.

Ruins found during the building of the museum have been preserved and can be viewed thru the transparent flooring both inside and outside of the museum.

During the walk up to the Acropolis we took a quick stop for a photo-op, and someone got a kiss on the cheek!

Then it was on to the Acropolis for a discussion of the ancient site, a fascinating mixture of history and mythology.
