Ancient, proud but also modern and multi-cultural, there’s no end of monuments and attractions to see in Athens.
Our outstanding conference venue for 2018 is the Wyndham Grand Athens, perfectly located, right next to the Metaxourgeio Metro station, for you to see them all. In fact, most metro stations are small art exhibitions of their own, featuring many artifacts unearthed during the excavations. Using the metro you can get to any place of interest within a few minutes:
- a wide variety of museums and archaeological sites that span the city’s 3000 years of history
- bars, clubs, concert venues and many other spots in Athens’s famous nightlife
- plenty of stores and shops, malls and pedestrian roads to explore and shop
- a plethora of restaurants and taverns that serve delicious Greek and International cuisine
- recreation areas, fun parks, natural parks
The Acropolis Museum
The Acropolis Museum is Greece’s newest and most famous museum. Greeks are proud of this museum and rightfully so; it is a dazzling modernist structure with impressive displays artfully arranged by historic period. Operated for the public in 2009, the Acropolis Museum quickly became a must-see attraction for locals and visitors alike.
From the Metaxourgeio metro station you can explore every corner of Athens. After a hearty breakfast at the hotel, walk across the street to the station for an exciting day of sight-seeing! Begin with the city’s most famous attraction, the ancient rock of Acropolis.
Athens is famous for many things, but surprisingly enough, not well-known for its coastline and sandy beaches. Yet, just 20 minutes south of the city, you’ll find landscapes that rival those of any island in the Aegean Sea. If you have already visited all the famous attractions of Athens and still have a day left to explore, the Athens Riviera is definitely worth a visit.
