The twelve responses to my question about sightseeing in Athens have been most helpful and I am grateful to each of you.
John, we have paid the $40 for Great Courses Greece and Turkey course. There are ten 31 minute lectures that are relevant to our tour. Thank you.
Tammy in Alaska caused me to laugh out loud at her comment that RS 90 minute Athens audio tour took them five hours but they had a blast. We had same experience in Paris.
Roxasamonte recommended War Museum and Byzantine Museum. We like museums.
Suzki, tells me to go to top of Lycabettus Hill for "sweeping views of Athens all the way to the Sea". (You have to love that phrasing). She also recommends Cycladic Museum and perhaps Benaki museum.
Janis walked to Mars Hill after overnight flight. Also mentioned going to Cyclade & Benaki Museums in addition to three hour walking tour. Janis, we have our Manh manh reservations.
GA Tech fan recommended going to Cornith but this will not be possible. Our out of town sightseeing will be Meteora.
Patty mentions temple of Poseidon, walking Anafiotika, National Gardens and Panathenaic Stadium.
Chani is a museum person so went to National Archaeology and Acropolis Museum even though they are included on the tour. She felt she saw a lot more on her own. Also had time for the RS audio Athens tour.
Universe44 feels as though the views from Mars Hills should not be missed. Also recommends the walking food your offered by Alternative Athens. Told me to eat real Greek food and walk the city.
Annie from FL recommends "We bike Athens" your. We will definitely do this. Thank you Annie, for the heads up. We have done this sort of activity in Barcelona, Copenhagen and Dingle. In Dingle air in your bike tires was optional.
Diane, I looked into Agora and it is even further north than Meteora where we are going the day after we land. Have a great time on your 23 April tour.
