Day 18: Leaving Athens

May 7th, 2013

Before leaving for a day trip to the southern tip of Sounion, we visited the new Acropolis Museum, which houses the sculptures of the Acropolis, including the sculptured metopes and friezes of the Parthenon.

Waiting in the lobby for our departure to Sounion.

View from the bus.

Temple of Poseidon at Sounion and the Attica coastline.

At the beach for lunch and some relaxation. The water was very cold but this didn't stop some of us from going in.

This evening we boarded the overnight ferry to Crete.

Goodbye Athens!!
