This week we are exploring Athens, Greece, in our retirement travel vlog. It started in the Panathenaic Stadium, the first modern Olympic Games site, in 1896. John reminisces about life long-distance running and thinks about the people that have run in this all-marble stadium throughout history. Next, we walk through the changing of the guard in Syntagma Square and then on to the Acropolis to get amazing views of the city and see some other area attractions. Finally, we finish our day with a trip to the Greece Street Food Festival, which takes place every May.

If you are looking for the best place to stay in Athens, we recently did a video on our experience in Kolonaki. It is a great neighborhood within walking distance of all the main sights of the city.
