Mediterranean Cruise - Greece, Athens, Acropolis, Parthenon

 Parthenon ticket
Finally, on our way from Turkey, we visited the famous Athenian Acropolis - Parthenon of Greece.  The temple was built using marble.  Greece must be financially rich to fund the renovation.  Now we know that is not the case.  We were informed that there is a marble hill in Greece, thus there is no shortage of marble.

The trip to Greece was timely, right before the financial austerity measure started.
