Anyone interested? I'll be available that one evening for a drink if you'd like to get together.

I don't know if you have aver been to Athens before, but if not, don't expect most of the original artwork from Ancient Greece. They are in the museums in London. And please do yourself a favor and go to the islands, especially Santorini (one of the proposed locations of Atlantis). Half of the island blew up in a volcanic eruption, so you get to see an amazing sunset over the Mediterranean.
Rubbish. A small part of the acropolis is in the British Museum. The rest is all there and mostly in situ. Be sure to check out the Benaki Museum. In my opinion it's one of the most beautiful museums in the world.
We're doing a cruise of the Greek islands and Turkey but we always like to fly in the day before the cruise and stay overnight. Just good travel "insurance". Then we can book a city tour or see the museums we want to see.

I think the hotel is near the Parthenon, and the Acropolis museum.

Off the ship in Santorini and the other islands (and the ports in Turkey) we always take a tour so we get to see everything!

There are about 10 AAAC Members in Athens and a few more around Greece, but I've only heard from one saying he couldn't make a get together! Oh well. When we get to the hotel in Athens after 22 hours of traveling (includes layovers) I might just have to have a drink for all of them! :drunken_smilie:
Check out the Wineries whilst on Santorini. The native Assyrtiko varietal is the new darling of sommeliers worldwide.
