The Acropolis, perched on a rocky hilltop above the bustle of Athens, is one of the grandest historical sites that I have had to opportunity to visit. I’m sharing a few photos from my 2012 visit in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand. If you have never had the opportunity to experience the grandeur of the Acropolis, you can take a virtual tour here. Happy Sunday!

At the tip-top of my list of things to see/do. Tentatively planned for fall 2014. Thanks a million for the lovely preview!
Tina, I hope you can visit! These pictures certainly don’t do justice to the sense of history that you get when you walk around the Acropolis! It was rainy the day I visited last year and there were very few other people. I hope to go back with my family some day. Thanks for your comment! Jennifer

What this site must have looked like in its glory days!
Wouldn’t it be great if we could see it then? It has undergone so much damage over the years under various occupations, but it is still so beautiful. It’s hard to imagine how impressive it was more than 2000 years ago! Thanks for your comment! Jennifer
How did you get your blog so wide? It looks great!
I wish I could tell you, but I have no idea! Maybe a question for the WordPress Community Pool? I’ll take the compliment though – thanks!
You are very welcome, you have a great blog.
