Lissa and I try and stay in a new place each time we are in Athens and then share this with you!

 

If you have a favourite spot, please let us know, so we can include it in our list for others - thanks!

 

Greece gets SUPER busy in August, so it is very important you book your accommodation well in advance.

 

ATHENS:

All the hotels recommended are located in Central Athens around Syntagma Square and are all about 15-30mins from the bus stop, and also depends on time of day, so please give yourselves plenty of time to get there.

If staying in Athens we recommend downloading the Taxibeat App.
