Today, on the advice of some people we met at the bar (who work at the hostel), we took the metro to Evangelismos and climbed the stairs to the foot of the Hill of Lycabettus.After that exertion, we opted to take the cable car to the top of the hill (instead of walking) and had to wait 20 minutes for the next one (almost the time it -apparently- takes to climb to the top.At the top of the hill, we visited the church of St George and took many photos of the amazing view of Athens (from the port of Piraeus out into the hillside). Unfortunately, there wasn't much else to do at the top of the hill, so we only spent about 30 minutes up there before heading off again.When we returned to Monastiraki, we wandered past the Temple of Hephaistos (but didn't go in - again!) and sat down at a taverna called Dia Tauta for an early lunch of a mixed platter with all sorts of delicious things to eat such as potato croquettese, grilled chicken, tzatziki, pita bread, and of course, lamb. After lunch, we still had a fair bit of time left over so we returned to the hostel (we had left our bags after checking out that morning) and spent about an hour there before heading to the airport.Our flight to Santorini was actually much shorter than expected - only 25 minutes instead of 45, only just enough time for a drink service. We were picked up from the airport by someone from the place we were staying, San Giorgio Villas in the centre of Fira. After checking in to the hostel, we headed out into the town to pick up our tour tickets for the next day, and to find a place for dinner.On crossing the town after we picked up our tour documents (and dealt with a very rude woman at the agency), we found the most perfect first sight of Fira, with the iconic blue and white buildings carved into the cliff face alongside steep and winding staircases, and the sun just about set over the ocean - a truly spectacular view. Nearby, we found a restaurant called Zafora for dinner, and I had a definite stand-out meal of the trip which was kleftiko (lamb baked in parchment with cheese, melts in the mouth!). I must admit, the never-ending supply of Greek food is spoiling me - it's all so fresh and delicious!After dinner, we walked on a little further, before returning to the hostel for an early night in order to make our tour the next day (and we HAD been walking almost all day).
