Flight 14) Palermo – Athens

I have been looking forward to this flight for a while. Athens is a place that I would love to visit myself as the amount of history and influence that this city has had on the world is legendary. I was especially excited about seeing the Parthenon.

The long flight allowed me to check out the islands north of Sicily, take a jump over Italy again and over the sea towards Greece. Without knowing the layout of Athens at all I took a couple of circuits over the city to get some familiarity before landing. I flew anti clockwise around the city, skirting the mountains to the east and flying low over the city to spot Acropolis Hill. I found it pretty tricky to spot as the city is so large but caught eye of it and took an extra lap to view it before heading for the airport.
