Athens

Athens, the capital of Greece, is a city with the most glorious history in the world. It is a city worshipped by gods and mortals alike; a magical city, with a downtown area that pulses from morning ‘til night.

Visitors will have the opportunity to visit the famous Acropolis and spend the weekend here or on the nearby islands of the Saronic Gulf. During the last decade Athens has been transformed into a modern European metropolis and is an ideal city break destination. Athens offers modern tourism and excellent business infrastructure with a well-connected and environmentally-friendly transportation network, Olympic-size conference venues and top notch accommodation options, ranging from luxury resorts to boutique hotels and youth hostels.

For business or leisure, the vibe of the city can be enjoyed at its gourmet restaurants and traditional tavernas, at the myriad cafes, cocktail bars and seaside clubs, on its 15 Blue Flag beaches or at the cosmopolitan shopping districts and malls. Sailing enthusiasts will find marinas available on the mainland and most of the islands. Athens boasts more than 300 days of sunshine yearly and mild temperatures year round.

Located at the crossroads of three continents, the capital of Greece, with an overall population of close to 5 million people, has been the melting pot of many cultures -so it’s no wonder its friendly and hospitable inhabitants embrace visitors so whole heartedly- making them feel instantly at home.
