Many years ago, before I even started dating my husband, I visited Athens. I saw the Parthenon. It was almost surreal as I stood there and touched it. The columns were carved elaborately, and the entire temple made you sad to actually think that people used to worship Athena there. Athena had apparently won a contest against Poseidon, so she had the city of Athens named after her.
In the Museum of Athens, many famous works of art were displayed, such as the golden mask of Agamemnon. Many other statues and sculptures could be seen, even though most of the greatest historical pieces of art were taken to the British Museum in London.Tweet
