I visited the Greek capital in the winter of 2013, near Christmas time. I had the luck of visiting the famous Acropolis temple during a cloudy sunset, and saw some stunning vies of the ancient ruins and the the whole city bathed in golden sunlight. Also walked around the bustling lit up with decoration for the holidays, and twisty alleyways filled with small shops and cafes. Nice colorful city — perhaps a bit too much color at times with graffiti having its way.
