We had read in a cycling book that the road from Corinth to Athens might not be very appealing, so we stayed camped in Corinth and took the train for a one day trip to Athens. This is a very BIG city! Of course we visited the Acropolis, from where we had a fabulous view of the vast city. The second photo is just one angle of view of the city - there are many more!
Further down you'll see Hadrian's Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus, followed by the Temple of Hephaestus.
