Before we launch into Easter weekend festivities (and there is plenty to report), let's cover one of the least-planned, best days we had in Athens!
On Good Friday, the weather was clear after a morning thunderstorm and the city was quiet, with most residents headed out to their villages for the holiday weekend. Rob and I worked extra in the morning to prepare for the evening's candle-lit processions. At lunch, we decided to take a run. Since our adventure to the top of Attica Hill was fun, this time we headed toward Lycabettus.
The neighborhood trees are starting to get green. Once we hit the side of the hill, it was all carved limestone steps, wild poppies and twig bridges. You hardly knew you were in the city!
near here, but mostly uphill. A perfect way to spend a relaxed, sunny day in Athens.
