Elegance, Style, Glamour and Luxury!
The beautiful and luxurious hotel we are staying is just stunning that a few minutes after I take the photos in our room I am out to see everything.
It is unbelievably beautiful with breathtaking views of the area around.
The Acropolis on one side, the Temple of Zeaus opposite the Hotel and the Lycabettus Hill much behind
Of course as it gets dark and the lights are lit up one after the other the whole picture changes. Everything seems different and even more beautiful.
For more than an hour I lie in bed with my eyes open as I don't want to miss the unbelievable beauty. The windows have suddenly turned into a live piece of art, -a painting that changes depending on the moment.
The swimming pool area was closed but the staff gladly opened the entrance for me for some pictures.
I only want to state that it is so elegant and very impressively decorated and I urge people who are planning visiting Athens to stay at least 2 nights here if they cannot afford to stay longer
I won't give more info as I believe my pictures can tell everything.
The Statue of Iniochos:
The statue upon entering the premises is Iniochos, one of the best known ancient Greek statues and one of the best preserved examples of classical bronze cast. It is the sculpture of a driver of a chariot race at the moment when he presents his chariot and horses to the spectators in recognition of his victory; he stands with admirable modesty and faces the crowd in total control of his emotions, a token of civilization in Classical Greece.
Iniochos was originally part of a complex of statues that included four horses and a chariot. With the exception of his missing left arm, the bronze statue is preserved in a remarkable state at the Museum of Delphi.
Enjoy the tour through my pictures! You can add your comments below of course.
