Amazing Views in Athens

Amazing Views in Athens

As a local of #Athens #Greece, I love to find new places from which to view this beautiful city. There is so much #history and #culture to admire, it's nice to take some time to appreciate this and get some #relaxation too! So here are my favourite spots in Athens, along with some excellent #foodanddrink recommendations too.


One of my favorite moments during the day is to enjoy a cup of coffee or eat

something seated somewhere comfortable. And if this is combined with a

wonderful view at a nice spot, then it's as if time stops for a while. I would like

to share my recent experience of four amazing spots which I have visited and

I feel are worth visiting either alone, with friends or with family.


The AthensWasHotel in the Historical center was my first stop. As soon as I

got in I felt the warmth and positive energy in the atmosphere.

Its interior  design is made of marble stone and wood which gives a cozy feel 

making one want to spend a long time there. At its top, I enjoyed the wonderful 

view of the Parthenon temple on the Acropolis hill. There you may try a variety 

of drinks or desserts including Greek traditional ones or one of the delicious 

dishes they serve. I believe that it is one the best choices if you want to stay in 

Athens. The  rooms are also lovely with a lovely atmosphere. From the 

AthensWas Hotel there is access to all means of transport and it is located in the 

heart of the Historical center of Athens. In case you chose to spend a night there 

you will definitely have a good start the following day. Worth mentioning is that 

despite its central location, it is both quiet and easy to get to. Recently it has 

won the tourism award Prize in the boutique city hotels category.

As soon as I enjoyed my fredo, I continued my little tour to the rest of the

spots.


A few minutes walking distance from the Hotel, there is the chocolat cafe-

restaurant in Thision which is in the Historical center as well. I stopped for a

while there and went up to its terrace. Sitting in a comfortable chair, I ordered

an orange juice. The whole of Thision as well as the Acropolis unfolded

before me. This place is gorgeous and its roof garden is open all day. Either

on a sunny morning or a lovely evening when you can sit under the star-lit

sky, you can have a wonderful time.

Number 360 coctail bar in Monastiraki was my next visit. It serves a variety of

great cocktails, for the evening mainly. Its breath – taking view gives one the

choice to have fun, listen to music and enjoy the spacious comfort that its

terrace has to offer.

One couldn't omit mentioning Lecabetus Hill. Whenever I go up this hill, I get

the urge to spend a long time there. It overlooks the whole of Athens which is

surrounded by a series of mountains and your eye can stretch out towards

the sea, which is visible from the southern horizon. The cafe located there, at

the top of the hill is a great choice for a drink and a fun, relaxing time.
