Athens Last Hurrah . . . Hello, Samos

We said our farewells to Athens in a big way this morning.

The group hiked to the top of the hill directly across from the Acropolis where the Tomb of Philopappos. This location has the most spectacular views of the city of Athens.

We then walked to the Temple of Zeus built by Hadrian to honor the city of Athens. Even though he was Caesar, he loved Athens more than Rome. This structure is overwhelming to behold.

After lunch, away we flew to the island of Samos. This picturesque locations is home base for three nights. We had a lovely large group dinner at a wonderful resort before returning to our fantastic hotel for a good night’s rest in preparation for a full day tomorrow.

Have a good day and thank you for your prayers.
