Antiquities galore, contemporary culture, scintillating nightlife and fantastic food: there’s something for everyone in Greece’s cosmopolitan capital that’s continuously reinventing itself.
Recommended place to stay:
Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens
Athens, Central Greece, Greece|www.fourseasons.com|
Official star rating:
If you want to combine Athenian sightseeing with lazing in the sun, the Athens Riviera – which unfolds along the glittering Saronic Gulf – makes an ideal base.
Vouliagmeni is far enough to appear like a resort and close enough to allow you an easy commute to the centre of town.
The Four Seasons Astir Palace re-opened in 2019 after a renovation, and occupies a forested spot in a jutting peninsula with great views of the shoreline to the north.
Add to this a private beach, a gourmet restaurant and boat excursions to well-known sites like Sounio or quiet beachy coves only accessible by sea and you have the perfect combination for the full Attic experience.
