Which Places do i absolutely have to visit in athens?

Picture this: you just arrived in Athens, you left your luggage at the villa you're renting and you are ready to take a trip back in time in the Athens centre...Where to go first?

Of course you visit the Parthenon and the Acropolis Museum for an inclusive introduction to Greek Athenian Antiquity and a unique birds-eye view of the whole city!

Are you planning to visit athens next summer? you nEED to visit these iconic landmarks

Athens is a dream destination that combines the ancient with the modern and picturesque. Once you leave the Acropolis Musesum, feel free to walk around the streets of Plaka, dressed in the neoclassical aesthetic.
We believe that wanderlust is a travel must, an inherent part of visiting the Greek capital. A five minute walk from the Acropolis takes you to the Herod Atticus Odeon, where many classical artists have "painted the atmosphere" with their divine music over the years. It is one of the best places to visit!

From music to sports, make sure to find your way to the marvellous Panathenaic Stadium, a staple landmark where the Olympic Games have many a times taken place!

Hotel vs Villa: Which is the ideal choice for your next vacation in athens?

Spacious dining halls or a homely kitchen? Shared pool and in-house spa treatments or private pool and personal training? Wether you feel like experiencing the Greek hospitality in a hotel, or rent your own apartment, one thing is for sure: luxury options are abundant!

However, we are willing to bet that besides a luxurious getaway, what you need right now is your privacy. So make sure to head over to our collection and book the Greek villa of your dreams! Our experiences are tailor made to make sure that nothing is missing your from private holdiays !
