A villa holiday in Athens presents you with an energetic city full of ancient and modern culture, that is constantly evolving whilst proudly celebrating its fascinating history.
No holiday in Athens would be complete without a visit to the Acropolis; its outstanding museum offers wonderful views over the ancient citadel. The exceptional Benaki art and design museum shouldn’t be missed either. And whether shopping for designer goods, or on the look-out for the next café to have coffee and baklava, wherever you go in Athens you will find yourself just round the corner from another astonishing ruin. For some perspective, take the funicular from Kolonaki to the top of Mount Lycabettus to get a spectacular view of Athens, the mountains surrounding the city, the Aegean Sea and on a clear day the islands beyond.
For lovers of Greek food, indulge your senses at the Central Market, eat out at a traditional taverna, or splash out at a waterside Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking fishing boats and yachts in Piraeus. In the evening, from your apartment balcony or a chic roof-top bar, relax whilst watching the sun set behind the Parthenon.
