Springtime in Athens

Springtime in Athens, originally uploaded by greek58.

Have you started planning your spring break? Athens is a popular destination for families and a great choice for a multi-generation reunion.
In addition to the obvious benefits of traveling during the springtime, mild temperatures, fewer crowds and better airfares, Athens and the surrounding areas put on their best in the spring: the meadows on Mount Ymittos, Philapappou Hill, and Ardittou Hill are awash in color, flowers are blooming everywhere you look and the roads are lined with poppies and wild mustard.
