Electra Metropolis Athens I stayed in a beautiful, five star hotel, right in the heart of the city, Electra Metropolis Athens! It had the most stunning view of the Parthenon & Acropolis from the roof top, where there was a restaurant, bar, and pool! My suite was very spacious, classy, clean, and everyone at reception was beyond helpful! The Rooftop Restaurant was absolutely divine with delicious food with such a tasteful presentation!
Exploring Athens To explore this amazing city, I actually did it by foot! I stayed right near all of these fabulous places, so rich in history! The Parthenon & Acropolis is an UNESCO World Heritage Site that I had the pleasure of viewing from my roof top, anytime! I also explored the grounds around the Parthenon & Acropolis, walked to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Church of Theotokos Gorgeopikoos & Ayios Eleytherios, Plaka, and Theatre of Dionysus! Just stunning!
