After two long months, Greek archaeological sites are officially reopening! The only way to celebrate is a visit to the Acropolis of #Athens, but things aren’t quite the same. Here’s a tour of the *empty* Acropolis!
#Greece #archaeology #classicstwitter
Usually packed with endless trains of your groups, the Propylaea was as quiet as a mouse! New barriers have been installed to reduce contact, but everything else looks endlessly familiar!
Minor changes on the site come courtesy of the archaeologists & architects of the Acropolis Restoration Project. Work continues in earnest toward restoring the Parthenon’s west pediment, but this sheet metal conceals great news: the removal of the old cement crane foundations!
Shots like these make today’s visit seem like something new. While it’s a privilege to photograph the Parthenon, Erechtheion & Propylaea without another soul in sight, something feels off without crowds of visitors from across the world all experiencing something special together
Visiting the Acropolis or any archaeological site in Greece on a day like today is sure to change the way you think about them. Without thousands of other visitors, the noise and bustle of Athens is nowhere to be found & you find new things to appreciate about a familiar place!
