Renovated to a classic style, the elegant boutique hotel Hera with its charming façade is ideally situated in the historic heart of Athens, right at the foot of the Acropolis hill and next to the archaeological sites. Guests will appreciate the exceptional view of the Acropolis from the hotel's rooftop restaurant as well as a range of further excellent services and amenities. Major attractions such as the Acropolis itself, the new Acropolis Museum, the Temple of the Olympian Zeus or the ancient Plaka with its narrow streets are only a few steps away. An ideal base to explore the Greek capital.
There is nothing more remarkable than a sunrise. Especially in Athens. It is in the morning, when the Greek god Helios drives his Sun Chariot into the sky, it is the part of day which most enhances the beauty of Greece’s landmarks and it is when you take a tour through the city’s incredible history, where you can appreciate today with thanks to its rich architectural legacy.
Begin your discovery with a visit to the old plateau of the Acropolis, where the ancient remains of the outstanding Parthenon can be seen standing alongside other manifold symbols of the graceful classical Greek era. Yet Athens’ claim to fame doesn’t lie solely in the past; it often overlaps with the present. You will get to know the colossal Panathenaic, the stadium where the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896, built upon the skeleton of an ancient Greek stadium. You will also visit the Greek Parliament in the renowned Syntagma Square and Athens’ vary own Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, solemn and haunting in its silence.
