One of the characteristics that stroke me the most in Athens, was its structure, being built over a valley that looks like an amphitheater looking at the Parthenon on top of the Acropolis hill, simulating a stage. So basically the possible point of views of the Parthenon are endless. But one of the best viewpoint to appreciate the panorama is definitely Lycabettus Hill. We went there right before sunset, so that we could enjoy the view with daylight, at sunset and at night. After the darkness covered Athens, and the Parthenon dressed his best dress of light, the view was quite dramatic. The Parthenon was standing colorful over the Acropolis, the only note of color, contrasting with the gray-blue tint of the city. To finish this metaphysics painting, the ships in front of Piraeus port, were standing still in the water, like fireflies in a summer night, but without movement.
