Even though it rained most of the tour, it didn't take away from the tour one bit. Having learnt about the history of Acropolis all of this years ago in school, it was wonderful to see it in person the actual site.

The most stunning structure of the entire site is the Temple of Hephaistos. The visit was made much more meaningful due to free headphone devices that helped up listen and follow our guide, who was very informative and full of knowleadge.
