I enjoyed Athens much more this time than I did on my first visit. This time I had a half day in Athens and then a visit to the Temple of Poseidon. I had lunch in a very nice hotel and had some shopping time in the old section of the city. I bought some Ouzo and a pin from the Hard Rock Cafe. The only drawback was the "tour guide from hell". She was very well informed but gave a 10 minute dissertation on a subject and then we would walk 50 ft and get another 10 minutes. I finally wandered off on my own and actually got to see the Acropolis. All in all it was a good day.
