Experience a day in Athens (video + images)
A DAY IN ATHENS
Begin your day with a walk under the Acropolis hill, through unique places such as the New Acropolis Museum, The Ancient Agora, Plaka and Thission. Keeping these memorable feelings, visit the Monastiraki Flea Market and exceed even your best expectations by taking in the indigenous and authentic flavours of the city of Athens. Heading back to the historic landmark, for your midday relaxation, there is no better thought than passing through Zappeion, the Olympic Stadium of Modern Times and the National Gardens. The sun sets over the city, casting a golden light on an ancient land filled with the world’s greatest artefacts. Athens is without doubt a place where the past meets the present around every corner. One minute you’re walking through The Acropolis, the next you’re right next to the sea-side or shopping in the city’s finest boutiques. And this is exactly where the renowned Voukourestiou Street comes to take the leading role. The day in Athens comes easily to an end as the evening sky fades under the city lights.
The grandeur of this historic capital gratefully filled your memories with unrivalled pictures and authentic flavours ranging from landmark monuments to modern shopping. This day’s closure could not be more beautifully met than by watching the CHANGE OF THE GUARDS right before having an opulent dinner at the GB ROOF GARDEN RESTAURANT where the unsurpassed views of the illuminated Parthenon create special moments. And why not have a drink before saying goodnight; either in the numerous city bars or in the award-winning ALEXANDER’S BAR of the Hotel Grande Bretagne.
