Acropolis

(this was about the only angle I could find that hid the construction)

 

We only had one very jet-lagged afternoon to see Athens, so we ate, saw the Acropolis, and wandered through some of the quainter streets.

 

For a little perspective, the Acropolis was completed in 438 B.C. To say it's mind-boggling that they could have built this (on a big freaking hill no less) is an embarassing understatement. More on the Acropolis:
