Capital cities are usually stitched together with vibrant neighborhoods and Athens is certainly no slouch in that department! The neighborhood of Piraeus, 5 miles to the southwest of the heart of Athens.
Athens possesses numerous fine visitor attractions including the Attica Zoological Park, Hellenic Parliament and Syntagma Square.
Mikrolimano Marina has an important part in this area's shipping history. After a big day exploring, stay at a comfortable hotel nearby. The Efplias Hotel Apartments and Suites and Piraeus Theoxenia Hotel are two great options. It doesn't matter if you're a landlubber or a sailor who's crossed a few oceans, a stop at Hellenic Maritime Museum makes for a fun and educational day out. Accommodation options to investigate close to here are the Hotel Mistral and Savoy Hotel.
Piraeus offers a wide variety of establishments which allows travelers to pick a place that best meets their budgets and requirements. The Anemoni and Hotel Glaros are amongst the more budget-aware hotels in Piraeus.
Check out the rates and amenities at the Harbor Suites if you're keen on basing yourself in one of Piraeus' premier accommodations.
Aromatic coffee and finger-licking treats draw Piraeus locals to Coffeeway. It's the perfect venues for an afternoon pit-stop. If you've really built up an appetite, Ρεφενέ Refene is a superb choice for dinner. Afterwards, finish another great day at Sherlock Hall, a local watering hole where locals meet up for a drink or two.
