Saints in Greece: Temple of Zeus, Olympic Stadium, and Museum of Athens

Today we enjoyed the temple of Zeus, the Olympic stadium made of all marble, and the national museum of Athens, with a bus tour of the city in between.  Students then took advantage of free time to shop, eat, and explore in groups.  Some elected to watch the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier.  Others sought much needed and earned rest at local caf├ęs.  A few of us went to the National Garden next to the hotel.  We look forward to the new acropolis museum tomorrow and our trip to Delphi. 

Enjoy a few more pictures of the group.
