For the winter break we decided that Athens would be perfect…and it was.  We saw some amazing sites and the people were awesome.

Mycenae…..Ancient Citadel located in north-eastern Peloponnese occupied from 1600 BC to 1100 BC…this is where Helen of Troy was Abducted from…Lions Gate

Epidaurus Theater ……..was designed by Polykleitos the Younger in the 4th century BC is located in the Argolis area of Greece it is considered the best preserved ancient Greek Theater with exceptional acoustics and is still used today.

Treasury of Atreus….this is a Tholos Tomb also known as the “Tomb of Agamemnon”. It was built around 1250 BC

We saw so many wonderful things that I can not list them all…check out the photos…there are so many.
