What to do in Athens

How can I find hotels in Athens?

Greece's capital is one of the world's most historically important locations, as well as being a captivating place to spend time. It's a place where you can discover the origins of democracy, learn how the Ancient Greeks thought and lived, and sample the best of modern-day Greek food and art. Or you can shop till you drop, party till dawn, and head to the beaches of Attica. It's up to you. The beauty of Athens is that it allows visitors to choose their own schedule. If all you want to do is absorb ancient architecture, take historical tours, and brush up on your Aristotle, you can easily do so. But there's a youthful energy about Athens which makes it a magnet for nightlife fans, as well as a lively fashion scene which competes with any European city. The only question is how to book a hotel in Athens that meets your needs. Thanks to eDreams, doing so is simple. Just use our search engine to specify dates, the size of your group, and any other special requirements. Then browse every high-quality hotel Athens has to offer. You're sure to find somewhere you love.

What must I see in Athens?

Most of the major sights in Athens have been around for thousands of years but retain the ability to enchant and amaze visitors. If you have any interest in ancient history at all, the Acropolis is a must-visit, and for many people it's the sole reason for seeking out Athens hotel deals. With its iconic Parthenon, dramatic location, and absorbing stories to tell, the Acropolis is unmissable. But it's not alone. The Archaeological Museum is among the finest of its kind in the world, the Agora provides a window into everyday Athenian life 2,000 years ago, while the Panathenaic Stadium will delight sports fans. The Byzantine Museum hosts some astonishing mosaics, there are ancient churches like the tiny Panaghia Kapnikaréa, as well as charming neighbourhoods to explore on foot - especially the Plaka, with its blossom-strewn streets and open-air eating spots. Add in vibrant flea markets, and easy access to day trip destinations like the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, and it's obvious that when you book a hotel in Athens, you won't lack for activities.

Where should I stay in Athens?

Athens has neighbourhoods to suit anyone's priorities. For instance, if you plan to spend most of your time gaping at the sculptures and architecture of the Acropolis, Plaka is the place to be. And it's a great area in general, thanks to its cluster of restaurants and traditional atmosphere. If boutiques and luxury living matter, Kolonaki could work better. It's an upscale place, with classy coffee shops, cutting edge fashion labels, and great views of the Acropolis from Mount Lycabettus. Alternatively, Exarchea is always popular with younger travellers, who value bohemian nightlife over high-end dining, while Monastiraki is a good place to hunt for cheap hotels within easy reach of the major sights. Then there's the area around Syntagma - the city's main meeting point. It's full of shopping centres and extremely central, so if you choose a Syntagma hotel Athens is going to be available to explore. But thanks to easy rail connections, you can also hit the beach in 30 minutes, so you don't need to feel limited to the city. In any case, Athens has plenty of appealing neighbourhoods, and all can be browsed with ease via eDreams.
