Sidebar: I started reading at a young age. By reading I mean devouring all the books I could. True story: Seester and I got grounded from reading as a punishment when we didn't do our chores. So that kind of gives you an idea of what I mean by I was reading at a young age.
All those Greek mythologies and the Hercules show (you know which one I'm talking about...the one with Kevin Sorbo) had me falling in love with the country. So you can imagine how much I was looking forward to this stop on our cruise.
After some research and discussion we decided to book a tour for this stop. We wanted to see as much as possible as efficiently as possible and we wanted reliable transportation. It's a good thing we did! There were three major cruise ships docked at the same time, each carrying over 2,000 passengers. The traffic was HORRIBLE.

Then our bus stopped by Panathenaic Stadium, home of the first modern day Olympic Games.
