Athens city is a place that invites its visitors to take to the outdoors. Enjoying the very best of the Mediterranean climate, moments spent outdoors will become a favourite pastime, like it is for so many Athenians. Athens also enjoys another significant advantage; it has a fairly small city centre which is easily walkable. Couples can easily saunter around at will, soaking up the ambiance of a timeless city that seamlessly blends ancient glory with contemporary grandeur. Therefore, staying in the beating heart of Athens, allows you and your other half to explore and wander, taking the most scenic routes that reveal one landmark after another. This also goes for dining outdoors, even more so for dining on the rooftops like ours, where the food is exceptional and the views are breathtaking.
