David’s Been Here is touring one of the world’s most iconic and historically significant cultural sites: Ancient Athens. Destroyed and rebuilt numerous times, this ancient metropolis is so extensive that archaeologists may never be able to recover all its ruins. There are, however, some structures standing today that simply must be experienced by all tourists visiting the Greek capital. From the 5th century B.C. Acropolis, home to the stunning Parthenon and ancient Agora to the Roman Agora, Hadrian’s Arch and Temple of Zeus, a visit to Ancient Athens is an unforgettable walk through over 2,500 years of history. Another series of must-visit sites in the capital are the free metro station museums (specifically Acropolis and Syntagma) where new-world and old-world Athens come together.
