Nicole in front of the Parthenon. We spent a long time on the Acropolis, but eventually the heat and general tiredness overtook us.

The crowds at the Acropolis were intense. This is an example. Almost everyone was with a tour (us too!), and so people clustered with guides, blocking staircases and pathways. When we got away and could just sit and gaze, the experience was much better.

Mark takes a bow in the amphitheater. Delphi is a series of steep terraces, with lots of walking, and Nicole is taking this picture from the path high above the amphitheater.

Getting off the ship at Santorini. A mule ride or funicular awaits us to get to the top of the cliffs.

Leaving the boat at Ephesus for the tour of the ancient site in Turkey.
