Athens Greek art is beautiful. I love the designs of old Greek architecture, the beautiful sculptures of Greek gods, and even to the lettering of the Greek alphabet. Jono and I visit Athens, Santorini and Naxos. The capital city of Athens is steeped in history. It is home to the rich archeological site the ‘Acropolis’….
