Hotel Reservations in Athens
When you think of Athens images of the outline of the Acropolis looming over the city and mouth-watering, feta topped cuisine spring to mind. There is a thriving modern culture though, of luxury hotels, and world class shoping that flawlessly intermingles with the 3,500 years of history and architecture Athens is known for.
You will doubtlessly visit the Acropolis up close as it is Athens most prominent landmark, but the Parthneon, Temple of Athena and Erechtheion that top the Acropolis are all striking even from afar. Even while you browse the Plaka's shopping bazaars for ouzo, gold and Kastorian furs you can admire the majesty of the millennia old marble monuments.
While you enjoy your feast of tzatziki drizzled salads and succulent fresh squid at a pavement café overlooking the original Olympic Panatheniac Stadium, be dazzled as the sun sets into the Mediterranean and sparks the white marble aglow. It was atop the ruins of an ancient coliseum this venue was constructed and the 1896 games that were held here revived modern Olympiad as we know it.
Amidst the bustle of downtown take a trip from your luxury hotel in Athens back into ancient Greco-Roman history and explore the haunting ruins of the Ancient and Roman Agorai, (Forums), where politicians, scholars and philosophers planted the seeds of modern society.
