Athens is one of the worlds oldest cities with a recorded history that spans over 3,400 years. As the capital of Greece it is also the largest city and the gateway to many of the Greek islands. We will be staying in the centre of Athens, within walking distance of Monastiraki and Plaka - an area filled with many boutiques, restaurants and entertainment options.
The stylish rooms feature furnishings and fittings by designers and includes Wi-Fi access, toiletries and slippers as standard. We will have 3 days to enjoy the state-of-the-art gym, rooftop bar and swimming pool with views overlooking the Parthenon and city.
On the evening of our arrival we will enjoy a three course meal on the Roof Garden of a top restaurant, that overlooks the beautiful landmarks of Athens.
THE ANCIENT ACROPOLIS TOUR
The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. Experience a tour with a private guide who will show us the secrets of the Acropolis.
Our tour includes a visit to the Areopagus. Like most city-state institutions the Areopagus continued to function in Roman times, and it was then that the Apostle Paul delivered his famous speech about the identity of 'the Unknown God'.
THE HOME OF THE OLYMPICS
In your free time there are many sites to visit such as the Panathenaic Stadium which is located on the site of an ancient stadium. For many centuries games in which male athletes competed in track events were held here, athletics championships as we would call them today.
Pack your dancing shoes as we'll be hitting Gazi, the nightlife and restaurant district in Athens.
ATHENS TO CHANIA
