This is the base of the place where all the street demonstrations in Athens are going on. Went there in 2010 to spend a few days in Athens and took some time to check out Syntagma Square and get a feel for the place. Interesting now to actually know the real estate we see on TV where the Greeks are in the streets.
Athens is in the news now everyday with the economic chaos going on there, but aside from all that Athens is a good city with tremendous history, incredible food, and a great city to move around in on foot and even by metro. This particular shot was taking early in the evening after climbing up to the base of the Acropolis and is looking back over toward Mount Lycabettus with the heart of Athens right below it.
