The outside was the best part. The hotel felt run down, especially the rooms which had NO view (a brick wall and the local cats) and very noisy air con. Hotel position was rather a long way from the old centre of Athens though very convenient for the museum & a very nice square with variety of good restaurants. Breakfast on rooftop was adequate & staff were ok.

Back in Athens, the tour hotel had a spectacular view of the Acropolis, adorned with the famous Parthenon. It ...
Osios Loukas was also an amazing experience, both the view and the actual monastery. Rich and colorful religious murals covered the ceilings and walls of the new age looking building. While the site was popping with tourists I still felt closer to God and could relate with the monks in a form of solitude in thought and prayer. I really felt like I was in a sacred place of worship and prayer, yea... it was awesome.
... of Wisdom produced an olive tree, symbol of peace and prosperity. It was an easy win for goddess Athena and her name was given to the city. Originally, we had planned to do this day on our own but a week before I had second thoughts and wondered if it may be too complicated to manage. I noticed on Tripadvisor that Private Greece Tours was extremely highly rated. I emailed Keith and asked him to set up a tour. We managed to get one other couple to join us, Frank and Sara ...
