A tale of two cities, Athens combines the ancient Acropolis with a modern city, full of wonder at every corner.
You can’t help but marvel at the Acropolis. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, it is visible from all over the city. The pedestrianised area is almost like an open air museum yet the modern city below has trendy shops, top class restaurants and a true cosmopolitan feel. Winter time is a great time to visit as temperatures can be too hot in the Summer months, and you still have the stunning sea views 😍 If you fancy a stroll along the beach, there are plenty outside the city to choose from, just a short bus ride away.
I found a great deal staying in the highly rated Athens Tiare Hotel. This hotel is very highly rated on tripadvisor and is in a fantastic location. Fly from Dublin on the 27th of September and enjoy an Athens weekend break for four nights here for only €284 per person.
