Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.

  • A must-see if you want to know more about how modern Greece came to be. It could do with a little bit more organisation, or description in chronological order - I did get a bit confused - and I'm not ...  more »

  • I loved that place! It's a great part of modern Greek history. Despite of it's importance as a building it is never crowded or busy for one to fully enjoy and appreciate it. Feel free to ask the staff for information as they are very pleasant to talk to. If show genuine interest they might treat you to a private tour around which is probably the best way to enjoy this place. You will also be able to pose as an MP or even PM in the old parliament hall and take as many pics as you want. So dress well xxx
  • An we'll put together museum looking at the formation of Greek Nationalism from 11th c through WWII. The naval war section is awesome. Only €3 for adult entry, easily done in 1hr. Free on Sunday's. Great for English speakers too.
  • A museum about modern Greek history (from Ottoman times to WWII). A great part of the collection consists of weapons from the Greek revolution of 1821. The building is the old parliament and is nice in itself. The museum is a bit old fashiond
  • The Old Parliament is a must see attraction, not only because its a historic building, but also a good looking one both inside and outside!
  • Very nice and informative exhibits. Felt that it's lacking chronology and an audio guide would have been helped a lot as the exhibits are not every well described.
