The City

Athens

A paradise for history buffs or anyone with an interest in human history, Athens is the world's ancient capital and the perfect place for a sunny city break with a difference. As you stroll around the city, you will sense the powerful presence of the Ancient Greek civilisation that continues to live on through the remnants and ruins found throughout the city. But Athens is by no means stuck in the past. Despite a turbulent past few years, the capital is buzzing with excitement for the future. Enjoy the thriving food scene and vibrant nightlife within a spectacular setting of historical heritage and cultural grandeur.

Sleeping

AthensWas

AthensWas is a modern boutique hotel filled with warm spaces to make you feel utterly relaxed from the moment you walk through the door. Boasting a marble and wood interior, it is a haven of peace amongst the hubbub of the city while only being a stone's throw away from all the major sites (it’s situated two blocks away from the Acropolis). Head up to the stylish rooftop bar and enjoy a cocktail or two as you let the astounding views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus transport you through time.

Eating

Nolan Restaurant

For Grecian food with an exotic twist, a reservation at Nolan is a must. The menu champions innovative sharing dishes, creatively mixing Greek-Mediterranean food with Japanese cuisine. Proudly holding a Michelin star, the restaurant is intimate, comfortable and contemporary and offers an exciting selection of imaginative cocktails to pair with your meal. We recommend the delicious Cod Burger combined with Japanese korokke.
