Mykonos & Athens - Greece

One of the last time i traded with Manuela, she sent me 2 greek cards. The 1st one is from Mykonos and the other from Athens.

I had to do some research to make sure this card really was from Mykonos. And, yes it is.
These lovely house are located in Little Venice neighborhood.
Little Venice is famous for its picturesque medieval two and three storey houses, which stand like a wall above the sea, and their colourful wooden balconies. Little Venice is one of the most beautiful and romantic places in the whole of Mykonos and offers a fantastic sunset.

No research was required to identify the place on this card.
The world famous Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and containing the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. Although there are many other acropoleis in Greece, the significance of the Acropolis of Athens is such that it is commonly known as "The Acropolis" without qualification. - in: wikipedia
