  STAND at an open-air place of Athens. At Zappeion, Patisia, wherever you like. Walk up a small hill, whatever hill, up to Ardittos, Lycabetus, or up to Filopappos' at the Acropolis, or anywhere you like. Choose to go up to the open-air tiny church of St. Dimitrios, downhill Acropolis and, turning right to where some people have carved a way for anyone to enable himself some steps, until from everywhere everything reveals itself to you. Just there, it is much better, because the spectator’s head is in a straight line to all hills and mountains and sees everything from neither too high nor too low.
