Nice, sunny day yesterday and a walk around the hill of Acropolis seemed like a good idea, as it was Greek Independence Day (25 March 1821) and therefore a day off for most people.
We got off the Metro (Line 1) at Monastiraki Station,
...which is beneath the Acropolis hill. Outside, a band was playing and there were throngs of people hanging around. The band looked like a municipal band, from their clothes, and therefore played a generic, 'festive' kind of music for the generic audience that would be present...
We walked on through the narrow streets of the Plaka neighborhood to the Roman Agora
... (which is not to be confused with the nearby Agora) and then moved further up the hill. It was around 3:00pm (lunch time for most Greeks) so, past the tavernas and the cafés which were packed with people, you could hardly see anyone walking and that made our walk much more enjoyable.
