Top Ten Things To Do During Your Time At The Hilton Athens Hotel

Visit the Acropolis
Witness the iconic majesty of the ancient Acropolis, and explore its magical, historic surroundings. The new Acropolis museum is one of The World's finest cultural landmarks, and is easily reachable by taking the brand new Metro train.

Explore Plaka
Stroll through narrow streets and experience Athens as it was 2500 years ago. Enjoy traditional Hellenic flavours in a local tavern, or enjoy a cool glass of ouzo (the local anise-flavored spirit) with some mouth-watering mezés (traditional Greek appetizers and finger-food) on the side.

Enjoy Kolonaki
Experience chic Greek coffee-culture at its finest. Enjoy a 'frappe' iced coffee on Kolonaki Square and become a part of Athenian high society (Big, stylish black sunglasses are mandatory!) Shop at world-renowned fashion outlets and work on your stamina while seeing the hilly streets of Kolonaki.

Scale Lycabettus Mountain
Once you're in the center of Kolonaki, why not take the teleferique (an inclined, funicular railway) to the top of the imposing Lycabettus Hill. See Athens in its full, magnificent splendor and witness a spectacular panoramic sunset with a glass of chilled Greek white wine. You'll feel on top of the world.

Check Out Athens Museums
Feel like checking out Athens' rich cultural scene? Choose from many historic and modern museums. The National Archaeological Museum is not to be missed, while the New Benaki Museum showcases the best examples of Modern Greek art; or pay a visit to the incredible Byzantine and Christian Museum, which features over 25,000 artefacts organized into collections dating from the 3rd to the 20th century.

Get Out & About in Gazi
The hip, new neighbourhood of Gazi is emerging as a renowned artistic stronghold in Athens. Full of interesting graffiti, narrow streets and quirky restaurants, this is a part of town where things are really happening!

Bar hopping at St.Irene and Karytsi squares
The Athens-by-night landscape is enriched with small bars, artistic venues and modern bistros at St. Irene and Karytsi squares, the new favourite hangout spot of the Athenians.

Boogie in Bouzoukia
Want to dance to the latest live Greek tunes? Arrange a table at one of the many Bouzouki clubs in Athens. It starts out casual....but after a few hours you'll see what 'dancing on tables' really means...

Escape to Glyfada & Kifissia
Anyone who thinks the suburbs are boring should take a trip to Glyfada & Kifissia, two neighborhoods that really embody the modern Athenian ethos. Hop on the tram to Glyfada for a stroll along the coast, unwind to the cool sea breeze, or do some shopping and taste delicious seafood specialties. Or head to the leafy suburbs of Kifissia for splendid retail therapy or fantastic restaurants. Both suburbs are places to see and to be seen.

Indulge in some Greek Island Hopping
Had enough of the urban experience? Head over to Pireaus, catch a boat to Hydra or Spetses and live The Island Life for a day. Then, totally rejuvenated, explore Pireaus and re-adjust to city life in one of the many welcoming tavernas...
