Athens is a famous city break destination because of its rich cultural heritage and ancient sites with outstanding culinary experiences, shopping, and second to none nightlife. The city enjoys more than two hundred theatre productions a year, numerous music and dance performances, art exhibitions, and various artistic and cultural events. But what makes Athens an ideal destination is its proximity to the sea.
Only a stone’s throw from downtown Athens, the Riviera is blessed with a 48 km coastline, a mild Mediterranean climate, idyllic Blue Flag beaches, Jet set glamour, elegance and the feeling of spending time on an island. There are stylish beach side venues along the Riviera that offer luxury sun beds, gourmet dining and clubbing with vistas of the turquoise waters.
