While my visit to Greece I had the opportunity to trace the “fingerprints” of Greek history from the Paleolithic Era to the Roman Period in the many archaeological sites in Athens as well as in Paros Islands.
Greece is located in south-eastern Europe, on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula ; it lies at the meeting point of three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa. Greece borders to the North on Bulgaria and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia , to the Northwest on Albania, to the Northeast on Turkey; to the West it is washed by the Ionian Sea; to the South by the Mediterranean Sea and to the East by the Aegean Sea.archaeological museums and collections that are scattered throughout.
First Few days I was in Athens which has a dense
grid of archaeological sites, most famous were the Acropolis of Athens and Olympia.
I got an opportunity to also visit the center from where we could see the telescopic view of the whole city.
I also went to Paros islands which is a classical Cycladic island with a lot of beaches.It was a few hours by ship from Athens.
Over all the experience
was mind opening as I could learn a lot from my experiences and also a lot about the Greek culture and a bit of basic Greek language.
