There is something majestic about ancient cities like Rome and Athens. As you walk in the downtown area you turn around the corner and quite unexpectedly you bump into a masterpiece monument. Like fondana di trevi in Rome or Lycicrates monument in Athens. Very characteristically...More

Athens is a warren of small streets, one way alleys, and roads built by men who never envisioned modern travel. The Monument of Lysikrates is one of the many ruins one happens upon whilst walking through Athens. It is a unique Corinthian structure and a...More

If you are in the Plaka, you will be around anyway, so stop by and take a look at it. Not especially interesting.
